We care about people
APCOA cares about corporate social responsibility and sustainability that can be measured by the people who use, supply and benefit from our services. That’s why we offer special assistance to young mothers, differently abled and elderly people; and it’s why we invest a significant annual amount in road safety awareness campaigns and young driver safety initiatives.
We care about safety
We do everything we can to make our garages, and your car parks, safe and friendly. Our staff are trained and qualified in site health and safety, and are given every opportunity to learn and grow in their careers. We’re very proud that our efforts have seen us awarded the Bronze Investors in People certification in the UK.
We care about the future
APCOA PARKING is already thinking about tomorrow. As a company involved in traffic and car park management we feel we have a duty to operate in a sustainable fashion, and to invest our knowledge and resources in lessening the adverse effects of heavy traffic on our roads.
Reducing pollution through traffic control
We work closely with satnav manufacturers to reduce congestion in major cities, which is often caused by drivers looking for a parking space. We also provide clear, consistent signage to direct drivers quickly to APCOA PARKING managed car parks.
Reducing pollution through technology
APCOA PARKING is committed to encouraging, developing and implementing new technologies for pollution reduction. To this end, we have installed electric car charging bays in many of the car parks we manage. We have also helped to develop low CO2 shuttle buses at major international airports, and consistently bring down environmental impact through our car park management operational procedures.
Better energy consumption in APCOA car parks
We use LED lighting and proximity sensors on ticket machines to radically reduce power use in the car parks we manage. The result is an energy usage reduction of more than 70%. We also install solar panels on the roofs of major multi-storey car parks, and pump surplus generated energy back into the national grid.
Better living for your customers
We’re committed to finding new ways to reduce energy, offer a better service to your customers and reach out to the local community. We offer social sponsoring, generous community investment and service packages designed to favour regular users of your car park. Our twin approach to corporate social responsibility and sustainability – sustaining the resources you use, and sustaining the goodwill of your customers – increases the value of your business and your property.
