SABECO has always striven to promote internal resources, planning a long-term and sustainable development strategy. The development of SABECO always attaches their rights and responsibilities to the development of the country, raising awareness of environmental protection.
SABECO has adopted a sustainable development model to guide its long-term strategy and its quest to continue bringing pride to Việt Nam, through an approach referred to as the company’s 4C commitment – Consumption, Conservation, Country, and Culture.
In terms of Country and Culture, SABECO has supported activities to preserve and promote the traditional values of Việt Nam, building a beautiful image of the country. Launching of the “Bản Sắc Việt” collection is one of activities honouring the country’s culture.
With Consumption and Conservation, Việt Nam's leading beer company also affirms its responsibility on global climate change through an investment project to upgrade its production plant towards minimising impact on the environment.
Inspired by the five-pointed star of the Vietnamese flag, the "Collecting Million Stars" programme encourages and inspires innovative ideas from all Vietnamese.
SABECO has an ecosystem of 26 factories that all meet the country's environmental protection standards. At the same time, it has joined with the Ministry of Industry and Trade to implement actions for food safety in industry and trade, and is one of the units with strong commitment in spreading the culture of responsible drinking and alcohol consumption - do not drive when having a drink, with many practical messages and actions.
"Throughout the 145-year history of establishment and development, one of our core values is the spirit of solidarity, joining hands with the Government and people to build community as well as honour Vietnamese values," said Neo.
One of the factors leading to SABECO's success today is its boldness in investing and applying science and technology into production associated with good environmental protection.
A sense of community responsibility in environmental protection, in addition to business development, SABECO has always paid attention to environmental issues.
Along with the investment in wastewater, gas and waste treatment systems in line with modern and environmentally-friendly technological production processes, investments in clean warehouses thanks to the system of parks, trees, dust extraction and air filtration have been thoroughly deployed at all factories.
Saving energy and contributing to reducing environmental pressures in the production process is one of the issues that SABECO has always paid much attention to.
In 2018, energy consumption was well controlled and decreased compared to 2017. Electricity consumption decreased by between 1 and 4 per cent, while heat consumption decreased between 2 and 6 per cent.
With the right steps in determining business strategy, choosing, investing and applying science and technology in governance, engaging with the community and society, upholding responsibility in environmental protection, SABECO’s work today will create confidence for its sustainable development to new heights in the future.
