Fifty busiBusinesses honoured for social responsibilitynesses have been honoured for boosting community development by shouldering outstanding shares of social responsibility.

Speaking at the award ceremony in Hanoi on March 10, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Van Chung praised businesses’ role in encouraging a sense of community and promoting national patriotic movements.

He urged other enterprises to follow their example, fulfilling social responsibilities and contributing to national development.

A representative from Dung Quat Oil Refinery Plant—one of the awardees—pledged to improve living conditions and workplaces for employees and protect the plant’s surrounding environment.

Workers are also encouraged to accept social responsibility to earn consumer trust and increase the company’s competitiveness, bolstering its sustainable development in the current global integration process, he said.

Of the programme’s thousands of participating businesses, 122 have been recognised for meeting responsibilities like tax obligations, customs clearance, environmental protection, worker’s insurance payments, and quality control to the level of international standards.
