Create a Sustainable Business | Go Green


Sustainability sets the focus on the future. It means the item or action is generating environmental, social and economic benefits, while not using up too many resources or causing pollution. Think about the next generation.  

Here are a few reasons why this is so important:

  • Cultivates a positive public image. Newer generations evaluate the “green “efforts of organizations to consider where to invest. 

  • A company that is sustainable (both economically and environmentally) is viewed as part of the solution; not the problem. 

  • One can increase profits and shareholder value through a combination of energy cost cutting and the cultivation of a positive public image that directly and indirectly enhances product sales. 

  • Ultimately, it is the right thing to do for the planet. 

Community Involvement has the power to bring positive, measurable change to both the communities in which you operate and to your business. Do not be a part of the problem, be part of the solution. 

Here are some steps that we take to Go Green and be Sustainable.

Reduction of Disposable Material
Each employee has a ceramic mug with access to reusable plates and bowls. We replaced styrofoam cups with paper cups for clients. We have also implemented a water filter to drink less from bottled water.
For the past year, we have begun recycling the plastics and flattened cardboard boxes used.
More Digital
Although we continue to print, we have reduced greatly the quantity of printing and have moved more digital. For what we do print, we strive to reduce the amount of paper and toner used by printing double-sided or by printing multiple items on the same page.

We hope this past month, you took steps to be Sustainable. 

Any step to “going green” is a step forward in creating a better Earth!

Watch our video below of our 2020 Program Graduates! Then, see what our graduates have to say about this program.


A&P International provides training that typically benefits Fortune 500 companies, and to have the opportunity to experience this training has been wonderful. As a small business, we do not have the resources to afford this type of training and A&P really does a great job throughout the entire set of classes they offer to expose and explain many great business topics that will benefit Albu & Associates for years to come.





I am grateful to everyone at A&P International for all their effort and work they put into the curriculum for this program. It was relevant, personal and will benefit our business for years to come!




The A&P team delivered a powerful training class entitled, Business Development Training Combo. This self-development business course analyzed me as a person and a leader. It helped me understand where my management team stood and how to have better interactions and attain a higher production from them. Knowing the difference between Customer Satisfaction and Customer Loyalty enabled me to have the proper technique to sell and brand. The material covered a lot of ground, however, Ana Maria, Renee, and the rest of the A&P team made it very impactful in there deliverance. It was very interactive and personal. They aligned each of our businesses to the material being taught. All of the training will be put to good use. Great job, A&P team!




I have really enjoyed this program, it is not just a refresher or course, but it challenges the participants to look deep into themselves and recognize areas of opportunity to improve. The fact that Ana Maria and Renee are brutally honest with you when going over your own self assessments and characteristics, truly motivates you to be better, embrace changes and be honest with yourself. I recommend this course to anybody who wants to take a hard look in the mirror, is willing to take the mirror’s feedback and apply it to your life and business. Thanks!

We Stand for Our Community – Justice – Diversity – Inclusion – Equality



We are praying for our brothers and sisters, those in and out of the marketplace, who have been treated with injustice. It hurts us to see these sad and unjust moments we have and continue to experience. We believe that all lives matter – in every color, culture, and stage of development. We were all created equally.

Amid this injustice towards the lives of the African American community, we want to inspire a movement of encouragement. We challenge you to look at those who are fighting for justice. We do not see this community alone, but those of every corner of the world standing for justice, equality, inclusion, and the development of diversity. People from every culture are standing with the acknowledgement that “Enough is Enough”. We all stand, through peaceful protest, for the equality of all life. No more should our minds dictate the behavior or traits of another based on the simple color of someone’s skin. That behavior is unjust, and we have reached the moment in our history where we will mark the time when the entire country, no, the entire world demands equality and inclusion for all people of color. Our differences were given by our Creator, in His One image, with different flavors, so that we could celebrate our differences for a united people. Diversity is a gift of life – the gift that gives us excitement and change. Let’s embrace our differences and collaborate for equality for all lives because, “Lives Matter”.
