CHALLENGES IN THE NEW ERA
The development of society has brought many benefits to the community, yet raised many challenges at the same time. The whole world has faced a variety of serious problems such as food hygiene and safety, environmental pollution, new diseases, depletion in natural resources, and global warming. These problems, as we believe, could only be reduced and resolved if there was a close collaboration and support between residents and businesses. Every individual as well as every organization are part of society. Their development is also the development of society, and vice versa, the rise of the society will result in certain positive influences on its members. We need to enhance our awareness for sustainable development as well as our responsible actions towards the community and society. This is necessary and useful for not only ourselves but also the present society and future generations.
VINAMILK'S DEVELOPMENT AND ITS SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES
In recent years, Vinamilk has made an impressive development and become one of the biggest corporations in Vietnam, and now continues to make constant efforts to conquer international markets, approaching its goal to be positioned as one of the 50 biggest dairy companies worldwide. Obviously, the company's development is proportional to its influences on society, especially in Vietnam. Being highly aware of this matter as well as the challenges that the whole society has faced, Vinamilk has identified its specific business rules that focus on a harmonious connection between business targets and social responsibilities, adhering to the principles of sustainable development. Vinamilk commits to fulfil its responsibilities toward all of its stakeholders and attempts to bring them as many values as possible.
Vinamilk's sustainable development orientation focuses on the 5 following points:
COMMITMENT TO STAKEHOLDERS
POLICY FOR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Vinamilk announced its Corporate Social Responsibility Policy in 2013. Through this policy, Vinamilk has proposed its commitments of responsibility to stakeholders in relation to five issues that are indicated in the company's sustainable development orientation.
Vinamilk believes that this policy would be the close connection between Vinamilk and its stakeholders including shareholders, consumers, State, customers, suppliers, and community. We are looking forward to receiving deep understanding and respect, and jointly creating common values and benefits for society.
