On December 10, 2020, the Vietnam Business Council for Sustainable Development (VBCSD) under the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) organized the ceremony to announce and award 100 most sustainable companies in Vietnam.

The event was honored to welcome Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh, leaders of the Government, ministries and agencies and nearly 300 representatives from domestic and international organizations and enterprises.

Organized annually by VCCI in coordination with the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and the General Confederation of Labor since 2016, the Program on Benchmarking and Announcing Sustainable Companies in Vietnam 2020 (CSI Program) has proved very productive and useful to the business community. Entering the fifth edition, despite many challenges from the Covid-19 pandemic, the CSI 2020 program still records a large number of participating enterprises from different fields, among which the Organizing Committee has selected 100 most sustainable enterprises.

Some outstanding names in the Top 100 Sustainable Businesses included Vietnam Dairy Products JSC, HEINEKEN Vietnam, Nestlé Vietnam, Coca-Cola Vietnam, TH Group, Tin Nghia Corp., Saigon Newport Corp., Dinh Vu IZ Joint Stock Company (Deep C) and Imexpharm.

Delivering the opening remarks at the ceremony, Dr. Vu Tien Loc, VCCI President, VBCSD Chair, said: “In addition to the positive feedback from businesses, the CSI Program has also been highly appreciated by the Government for promoting corporate sustainability among businesses”. In order for CSI to come closer to the business community and effectively support businesses of different sizes, VCCI will launch a modified CSI index that fits even micro, small and medium enterprises, and large enterprises, Dr. Loc added.
