CSRWe don't work in isolation.
At ADP, we take a proactive and engaged attitude toward corporate social responsibility. Our business is about providing architecture that serves and celebrates the needs of people. As a result, we come into contact with different individuals, organisations and communities on a daily basis. Our Investors in People certification further reinforces our commitment to people: our practice is a community in itself, too.
As an ISO 14001 company, our commitment to sustainability, in both our internal studio management and the architectural services we deliver, reminds us further that we work in an interconnected world. We take a proactive view of our role within it, and consequently, we strive to responsibly contribute positive, tangible assistance to the communities and causes we support.
Sometimes, it's the smaller things that count. We don't believe in unsustainable grand gestures. With our excellent track record in the education sector, for example, we are particularly keen to support young people across all our studios. We provide opportunities for work experience students to discover architecture: pupils from local schools have the opportunity to join our studios, gaining insight into a highly technical, creative and demanding profession. A number of our staff are also involved with local universities as lecturers and examiners, offering their practical experience and skill to the next generation of architects.
Our current nominated charity is the Marudyan Society located in Gurgaon, India. Their aim is to provide sponsored education to children who are living below the poverty line. We are supporting their effort with a series of fundraising events across our studios.
Our chairman, Roger FitzGerald, is among 100 leading architects and designers who come together each year, to capture 10x10 perspectives of London to raise money for Article 25 – a charity committed to building solutions to global problems.
