About the Program

AmCham’s CSR Recognition Award Program is designed to raise awareness and to provide recognition to firms with best practice CSR programs in Vietnam. This program is only open to members of AmCham Hanoi.

Today, the value of being a good corporate citizen goes beyond the pride and satisfaction of providing simple altruistic support for worthy goals. Strong and consistent CSR policies are a cornerstone of the identity of many brands with customer bases that strongly identify with causes championed by businesses, from ethical sourcing to contractor working conditions to carbon footprints and a thousand other issues in between.
