AP Sensing and Social Responsibility
At AP Sensing we recognize the importance of social responsibility. As a successful midsized company we are proud to make a contribution when it can make a difference and help others in need.
This is made possible not only thanks to our employees, but through a worldwide network of committed business partners – their efforts are a major reason for our continued success. Due to our worldwide presence we often see firsthand how difficult life can be for people living in poverty, or for victims of natural disasters.
We also want to recognize the hard work and dedication of organizations that improve conditions for the poor and needy.

- Originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo and its adjoining countries — Angola, Central African Republic, Burundi, Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia (the Conflict Area); and
- The mining and trading of which are used to fund armed conflict in the Conflict Area.
