On June 28th, 2018 CCIFV together with LIN Center for Community Development and CanCham organized the Conference How Doing Good is Good for Business. This was a great achievement for us, as increasing the flow of good business practices in the network and raising awareness about CSR is one of our top priorities. The conference was attended by 280 guests, exceeding our expectations and confirming the growing importance that people are placing on making long-term, sustainable impact on society and the environment in Vietnam.

The conference was designed for companies who want to optimize their CSV/CSR tools as a strategy to sustainably grow their businesses, but also suitable for non-profit organizations looking for innovative models and win-win-win approaches for collaboration with companies.
On behalf of CCIFV, LIN & CanCham, we are so excited to share some highlights and successful stories from the event:
Here is a message we received from one of the conference participants:
"....you guys did great! I thought the quality of organization was excellent and the level of discussion just about right for the assembled crowd. It's a huge topic to cover and I thought a lot of people came away from the day's events energized and looking for ways to move forward.
There were some really great stories told -- the ones that really stuck out for me were iCare Benefits, Marou and Decathlon. They all clearly understand the concepts well and have implemented some very impressive approaches. What's really key is they didn't set out to do "CSR" - they just wanted to do what they thought was right for society and their businesses.
Congratulations! Looking forward to next year's now!"
Presentations of speakers at the event, together with some reference documents will be shared on the event website soon.
To keep the momentum, LIN will be organizing a follow-up workshop on “Socially Responsible Leadership” in October. Stay in touch with us to be posted on further information!

Today we are very proud of our members Decathlon, Exo Travel, Marou and Vergers du Mekong, and their amazing speakers during the conference, who have been committed to share their sustainable vision and demonstrate how they create value for business and for society.
