OUTSTANDING ACTIVITIES

CONTENT:

More and more enterprises in Vietnam have attached much importance to CSR activities and the connection between CSR activities and sustainable development to integrate CSR into their development strategies. The United Nations and its member countries, including Vietnam, always emphasize that to reach the sustainable development target, the participation and contributions of stakeholders in society, including enterprises, governments and social organizations, are needed. Therefore, the cooperation between enterprises and non-profi t organizations to make use of their strengths should be facilitated and boosted so that long-term solutions for the community and society in general can be worked out.
How can enterprises’ CSR activities be associated with their sustainable development target? How can business leaders know the benefi ts of CSR activities and sustainable development to coordinate with social organizations to build long-term strategies? How can CSR become a buzzword in the business community. Experts, enterprises and social organizations will be able to answer these questions at the merit ceremony and seminar.
