Thomas Frisenberg, Director of the Vietnam-Danish E-softlow Company, proposed that businesses create favourable working conditions, strictly comply with the law, and ensure equality among all employees, along with improving their professional skills and facilitating their participation in CSR.

These will increase labourers’ responsibility for their work and create a positive image for businesses, thus attracting more customers and enhancing business operations.

Danish experts also introduced practical tools for businesses to self-evaluate and improve their implementation of CSR, and take advantage of CSR in their operations.

According to statistics, private enterprises are paying greater attention to social and environmental issues, so they tend to use CSR to make a positive impact on society through social, environmental and economic activities.

CSR is not only part of enterprises’ production cost, but is considered part of the strategic brand and partner management.

The seminar is held within the framework of a Vietnam-Denmark Cooperation Program, aimed at increasing businesses’ competitiveness.
