“This is the third year in a row that Herbalife Vietnam has been listed among the top 100 sustainable companies in the country by the VCCI. We understand that the implementation of a sustainability agenda is an ongoing process which requires daily efforts by all individuals in an organisation as well as great co-operation from external stakeholders. I would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere thanks to our stakeholders for their strong support as well as to our members and employees for their dedication,” said Vu Van Thang, general manager of Herbalife Vietnam and Cambodia.
“Aligned with our long-term business agenda in the country, we will continue to build on our sustainability goals, with priorities on compliance, customer satisfaction, and innovation. Along this journey, we will continue to work closely with all related stakeholders to create shared values for our consumers, communities, members, and our company.”
The evaluation of Top 100 Sustainable Businesses is based on the Corporate Sustainability Index (CSI) developed by the VCCI and updated yearly by VCCI experts and members, government authorities, local and international organisations, and many independent experts. The indexes span sustainability indicators in the areas of economy, environment, and society, and are widely acknowledged as a benchmark for evaluating and ranking Vietnam’s sustainable businesses.
Starting in 2016, Programme on Benchmarking and Ranking Sustainable Businesses is organised by the Vietnam Business Council for Sustainable Development (VBCSD) under the VCCI. This year, the number of candidate profiles was about 500.
The VCCI co-operated with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, and the General Confederation of Labour to host the programme.
