Programme promotes business initiatives for the community

NDO – The ‘En Xanh’ (Green Swallow) Programme, which aims to promote business spirits and solutions for urgent social and environmental issues, was officially opened in Da Nang city on July 18.

Launched by the Centre for Social Initiatives Promotion (CSIP), ‘En Xanh’ is expected to become a long-term, prestigious and large scale programme in gathering and promoting businesses initiatives for the community.

The ‘En Xanh’ festival will be held from August 19-21, including a scientific seminar and a Gala night to honour the most outstanding initiatives and individuals for 2017.

Over the past years, Vietnam has faced numerous challenges related to the environment and society, requiring creative and effective solutions. Many enterprises, organisations and individuals have played pioneer roles in creating business initiatives to address social and environmental issues; however, most were spontaneous and fragmented.

The ‘En Xanh’ Programme is expected to enhance the cohesion and cooperation, laying a foundation for all initiatives to be widely popularised and bring more benefits to the community.

At the event, Chairwoman of the board of directors of the CSIP Ha Thi Thu Thanh called for the community, individuals and organisations to support the programme in seeking, honouring and expanding business initiatives as well as conveying the programme’s message to the community.

Also on the same day, the programme’s organising board held a talk themed ‘Business initiatives for the community’, with the participation of representatives of many agencies, non-governmental organisations and enterprises in Da Nang.

The participants shared difficulties and challenges in the business activities for the community’s benefit as well as discussed the meaning of business models and ideas associated with urgent social and environmental issues.

The CSIP is a non-governmental and non-profit organisation, aiming to promote the development of social businesses and social initiatives in Vietnam and foreign countries in the region.

Initiated in 2008, the centre has sought and provided direct support and investment to more than 147 entrepreneurs and social enterprises which have applied sustainable business solutions to solve challenges related to social and environmental issues.
