DKSH’s local community initiatives bring positive impacts to localities it operates in

DKSH provides comprehensive market development solution packages, integrating all services such as sourcing, market analysis, marketing and sales, logistics services, and after-sales services and others. In Vietnam, our network boasts 21 business locations, including offices, distribution centres, and cross docks, as well as nearly 4,000 employees.

With more than 30 years of experience in Vietnam, we are proud of being trusted partners of hundreds of companies across healthcare, consumer goods, performance materials, and technology.

We are committed to building long-term business partnerships in Vietnam. We constantly strive to bring world-class standards to industries in Vietnam, while also contributing to the development of local communities.

DKSH Vietnam has made a change in its sustainable development strategy since 2022. The company’s sustainable development structure is currently based on four objectives: enabling people to flourish, making supply chains more sustainable, becoming climate neutral by 2030, and making a positive local impact. With this new sustainability strategy, DKSH enables people to flourish by supporting employees in the comprehensive development of their capabilities and expertise.

We create many opportunities for each employee to develop themselves and their career, such as training courses and an open feedback culture. Also, DKSH respects human rights and supports diversity, equality, and inclusion to create a favourable environment for all employees.

For the pillar of increasing the sustainability of the supply chain, DKSH works with partners towards sustainability and minimising the impact on the environment via waste management initiatives, such as expanding eco-friendly packaging, paperless operation, and b-box delivery.

DKSH is committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2030 through various actions. Specifically, the company focuses on operating activities to neutralise climate change, disclosing emissions, and utilising renewables. At the same time, the goal of climate neutrality is achieved through improving operational efficiency. From there, the company reduces energy use and emissions by optimising delivery routes or focusing on using energy-saving equipment, such as LED lighting at distribution centres.

Meanwhile, DKSH implements projects contributing to the local community. Such schemes are implemented by company employees focusing on bringing positive impacts to the communities where we operate, from hunger eradication and poverty reduction to improving life skills.

With our new sustainability strategy, we bring related values deeper into business operations. DKSH defines the vision of being a trusted partner for clients, customers, and businesses. Furthermore, the company also operates with the goal of enriching lives in the communities where we do business globally.

In addition, becoming a member of the UN’s Global Compact in 2022 demonstrates DKSH’s strong commitment to strategic planning and operations with the highest standards of human rights, labour, environment, anti-corruption, and action for common community goals.
