HEINEKEN Vietnam: One of the Most Sustainable Companies in VietnamSaturday, November 30,2019
AsemconnectVietnam - On November 26, HEINEKEN Vietnam was selected amongst the top 3 most Sustainable Companies in Vietnam 2019 (in manufacturing sector). The event was organized by Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) in cooperation with the Vietnam Business Council for Sustainable Development (VBCSD) at Sheraton Hotel, Hanoi.
- building a simple decision-making framework, which includes sustainability as a core component, to guide all decision making at HEINEKEN Vietnam;
- constantly communicating and interacting with its employees to inspire and help them better understand the impact of their daily activities; and
- promoting and sharing sustainability practices with business partners and stakeholders to raise awareness and encourage participation. This is done through workshops and regular communication activities.
- Implementing Circular Economy: the Tiger Cap Recycling program is an exciting project that is a three-pronged strategy to encourage recycling; reduce waste; and to provide vital infrastructure for the community. Started in 2018, this project has already resulted in two bridges being built from recycled bottle caps in Tien Giang and An Giang province this year. A third bridge is underway and will be completed in early 2020 in Ho Chi Minh City. This is a clear example of how circular economy can create value for society, protect the environment, and support business growth.
- HEINEKEN Vietnam has proactively worked with both the Vietnamese Government and VBCSD to encourage sustainable development amongst businesses by sharing its best practices of circular economy at various training sessions and workshops with other local businesses throughout the year.
- Protecting the Planet: HEINEKEN Vietnam uses renewable energy, has reduced its water consumption and sends virtually zero waste to landfill in production with 99% of its waste and by-products from production being reused or recycled.
- Prosperity in Vietnam: In terms of economic impact, HEINEKEN Vietnam has directly and indirectly created 166,000 jobs and contributed nearly 1% of Vietnam’s total GDP in 2018.
