“As one of the pioneering enterprises in sustainable development, we want to share our experiences and inspire other enterprises to make sustainable development popular in Vietnam,” said Vuong.

Until now, Unilever Vietnam has achieved the goal of improving the health and living conditions of more than 22 million Vietnamese people; shifting entirely to using renewable energy, reducing 43 per cent of water, and there is no harmful waste in its factory system in Vietnam.

In addition, the company engaged in training more than 3.7 million women and funded more than VND350 billion ($15.2 million) to support women in starting a career through microfinance programmes.
