This is the fifth time the company has received the recognition since starting operations in the country.
The award is an honorable title representing recognition from the Vietnamese Government, ministries, the business community and social organizations for pioneering companies in sustainable development.
To be named in the list, AES Mong Duong satisfied 119 indicators in the Corporate Sustainability Index (CSI) in four areas: Sustainability Performance Index; Governance Index; Environmental Index; and Labor-Social Index.
David Stone, president of AES Vietnam and CEO of AES Mong Duong, said: “We are pleased that AES Mong Duong’s continuous efforts in sustainability and positive impact on Việt Nam's socio-economic development have been recognized. AES has built a reputation as a trusted partner in the energy sector in Việt Nam, while together with our partners, fulfilling AES’ global mission of accelerating the future of energy around the world.”
The company’s sustainability strategy focuses on three fundamental pillars: maintaining a solid financial profile with stable and predictable cash flow; continuing to operate our Project safely, efficiently and sustainably; and continuing to progress with the localization program, thus providing opportunities for local talent to develop and grow in leadership roles to ensure long-term business continuity.
In the last five years, with approximately 35 billion kWh generated, Mong Duong has made significant contributions to national energy security, which serves as a foundation for higher penetration of variable renewable energy sources and accelerates responsible development and transformation of the energy sector.
Since 2015, the Company’s Social Impact Program, focusing on four main pillars – Health, Education, Livelihoods and Infrastructure – has been implemented to improve the quality of life for local communities.
More than 150 CSR initiatives with a total value of VND20 billion have been initiated, helping to make lasting and positive impact on the lives of more than 200,000 local people.
AES Vietnam was also recently honored to receive the 2021 Corporate Social Responsibility Award for the fifth consecutive year by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham Hanoi). The award recognizes companies that demonstrate a connection between their business operations and society, and who strive for both long-term economic and social value.
The two awards follow the recent publication of AES Mong Duong’s sustainability report for 2018-2019, outlining the company's positive business impact through delivering sustainable value to stakeholders, while contributing significantly to the sustainable development of the local economy through an effective partnership.
