Engaging CSOs in CSR in Vietnam (CSR & CSOs in Vietnam)

CSR -CSO

Since January 2012, CDI and Batik International with support from CFSI and Ile de France started an initiative to establish a network of Civil Society Organisations  (CSOs) in Vietnam to work on CSR which aims to promote human rights at work, improving environmental practises and monitoring business obligations by active engagement of community.  

 In the past two decades, Vietnam achieved a fast economic development which brought the country to the middle-income countries group in 2009. Poverty has been considerably reduced but still affects approximately ¼ of population. Vietnam became a member of the World Trade Organization and several regional and international institutions, which accelerated the process of international integration as well as deepened impacts of globalization. However, in the global supply chain, Vietnam is poorly positioned as its production along little added values and emerging problems in terms of environmental protection, labour affairs and social development. In this context, corporate social responsibility is receiving growing interest.
