Members are invited to join the first meeting of AmCham’s new Sustainability Committee on September 9. This Committee provides a forum to facilitate best practice sharing and promote the ways in which AmCham members are committed to socially and environmentally sustainable business practices.

The Committee focuses on strengthening the collaborative relationships of members with local communities in the areas in which they operate, and encourages members to pursue opportunities to benefit and improve the environment. It also aims to promote the interests of AmCham and its member companies and raise awareness of environmental issues affecting business and quality of life in Vietnam.

To raise awareness of CSR among AmCham members and the community, and to provide recognition to firms with best practice CSR programs in Vietnam, the Committee organizes AmCham’s Corporate Social Responsibility Recognition Award Program. Applications for this year’s CSR Awards are being accepted right now. Click HERE for more information.

The September 9 meeting will introduce the Committee, will share some best practices of CSR/sustainability initiatives, and will update attendees about Vietnam’s National Action Plan on managing plastics waste in the ocean by 2030. The meeting will also review this year’s CSR Recognition Awards program and plans for the awards dinner in October.
