Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a term used to describe a company’s efforts to improve society in some way. Whether it’s by empowering women, implementing environmentally friendly policies in the workplace, or trying to help disadvantaged children, more and more companies are incorporating social responsibility into their overall business strategy. When businesses are conscious of their social and environmental impact on the world, they can benefit society by giving back and helping to find solutions to everyday issues. At the same time, being a socially responsible company can bolster a company’s image and build its brand. Furthermore, being part of a strategy that helps the greater good can boost employee morale and lead to greater productivity in the workforce. Creating a good CSR program costs time and resources. However, it is well worth it!
On October 30, Ambassador Daniel Kritenbrink will join the AmCham leadership and the Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment in presenting our 2019 Corporate Social Responsibility Recognition Awards to 34 member companies.
Now in its fifth year, AmCham’s CSR Recognition Award Program is designed to raise awareness of CSR among AmCham members and the community, and to provide recognition to firms with best practice CSR programs in Vietnam.
To qualify for AmCham’s CSR Recognition Award, a company’s CSR program must receive high marks in four separate categories: (1) Attention to business objectives and societal needs; (2) Creation of long-term economic and social gains; (3) Communication and sharing of best practices; (4) Program sustainability.
The companies receiving awards on October 30 have demonstrated they understand the linkages between business operations and society, and conduct business in a way that creates both long-term economic and social value in Vietnam.
