Corporate Social Responsibility

Our commitment to our staff, our community and our environment.

Supporting Charities and Communities

Our official charity for this year is Dame Hannah Rogers in Devon. We have a programme of planned activities to raise money for Hannahs, supporting their mission to empower, advocate and enrich the lives of children and adults with disabilities. In the past, we have supported charities including the Teenage Cancer Trust and St Luke’s Hospice. Applied also sponsors a number of local sports teams.

Valuing Our People

We want to make sure Applied is a great place to work and are committed to the fair and ethical treatment of our employees.

Applied has a strong leadership team and aims to create a pleasant, suitable and safe environment for everyone in the workplace.

We value our employees and support their personal development. Working with local schools and colleges, we offer placements for students to give them an insight into engineering and help them decide their future. Applied is committed to supporting the teaching of STEM subjects in schools and takes part in outreach activities.

Being a Responsible Business

We make sure our business is conducted according to rigorous ethical, professional and legal standards. We aim to minimise the impact our activities have on the environment and are committed to reducing our carbon footprint.

Both of our sites have video conferencing facilities to reduce car journeys and we use remote access technology to reduce engineer site visits in the UK and overseas. We support employees working from home where feasible.

We have a sustainable approach to procurement. We are exploring options for sustainable energy including solar panels for our large Plymouth factory, recycling and a zero waste to landfill policy.
