Tentative date: December 2, 2022

OUTSTANDING ACTIVITIES

SEMINAR CONTENT:

* More and more enterprises in Vietnam have attached much importance to CSR activities and the connection between CSR activities and the sustainable development to make CSR activities part of their development strategies.
* In times of back-to-back socio-economic difficulties and challenges like now – from global warming, environmental pollution, and depletion of natural resources to the threat of poverty, the marginalization of the poor, and the emergence of deadly contagious diseases, most recently the Covid-19 pandemic – governments and businesses alike are facing a grim reality: how to sustain development amidst uncertainties.
* The awareness that business can only grow alongside a developed community has prompted a strong shift among enterprises to invest in the society where they operate, and, in a deeper sense, to protect the social and natural environment for the good of all stakeholders in the long term.
* How can enterprises’ CSR activities be associated with their sustainable development target? How can leaders of enterprises know benefits of CSR activities and sustainable development to coordinate with social organizations to build long-term strategies? How can CSR become a popular word in enterprises’ operation? Experts, enterprises and social organizations will answer these questions at the merit ceremony.
