AMCHAM Thailand Recognizing the Top Corporate Social Responsibility Programs
Since 2007, AMCHAM’s CSR Excellence (ACE) Recognition Program has honored member organizations that create long-term economic and social benefits in their Thailand communities. Over the years, the program has grown in size, from two companies received ACE recognition in 2007 to 62 member companies that carried out exemplary Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs in 2016.
Each year, AMCHAM honors their ACE recipients during the American Thanksgiving season, a holiday that celebrates civility, cooperation and perseverance.
The ACE Recognition Program has become one of AMCHAM’s most popular events, with strong participation among Chamber members and event coverage by Thai and international media outlets.
To qualify for an ACE recognition, a company’s CSR program must receive high-marks in four categories:
(1) Attention to business objectives and societal needs;
(2) Creation of long-term economic and social gains;
(3) Communication and sharing of best practices;
(4) Program sustainability.
In addition to the award, selected companies are recognized at the AMCHAM monthly luncheon in November, listed on the AMCHAM website, and acknowledged with a press release and a feature article in the Thai-American Business Magazine.
The program provides special acknowledgement for CSR excellence over consecutive years. A Silver level acknowledges three consecutive years of ACE recognition; A Gold level acknowledges five consecutive years, and a Platinum acknowledges ten consecutive years. Along with the title, this achievement at the AMCHAM head office.
