Winners of CSR Excellence Awards Announced


November 21, 2017 – Three new awards were unveiled at AMCHAM Thailand’s CSR Excellence (ACE) Awards, which honor the corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs of member companies. U.S. Ambassador to Thailand, Glyn T. Davies and Minister Atchaka Sibunruang of the Ministry of Science and Technology presided over the 11th annual awards celebration this evening, recognizing companies with a demonstrated commitment to conducting business responsibly and giving back to society.

More than 70 companies applied for the awards, 59 companies met the rigorous qualification standards for recognition of their CSR activities, and three were selected as best in class:

-Western Digital won the Excellence in Partnership Award – presented by U.S. Ambassador to Thailand, Glyn T. Davies and recognizing a CSR project that promotes U.S. - Thai-based partnerships that bring U.S. knowledge, expertise, or best practices to Thailand.

-Dow Chemical won the Excellence in Promoting Thailand 4.0 Award – presented by Dr. Atchaka Sibunruang, Minister of Science and technology and recognizing excellence in CSR programming that supports the Thai government’s efforts under the Thailand 4.0 strategy. 

-IBM won the Excellence in CSR Projects Award – presented by AMCHAM and recognizing general excellence in CSR projects. 

Ambassador Davies applauded Western Digital for their win, along with all companies with admirable business practices. “I am proud to present the AMCHAM Excellence in Partnership award for the first time.  This award highlights the exemplary efforts of American companies who work alongside Thais to bring about innovative, creative change through their CSR activities.  U.S. firms set the gold standard for innovating with a positive social purpose,” he said. “They pioneer new technologies and business practices that help transform Thailand’s economy toward achieving the goals of Thailand 4.0, but also go beyond that to empower communities to help themselves.”

AMCHAM Board President Jeffrey Nygaard, who opened the ceremony, highlighted the need for companies to focus on creating meaningful long-term impacts. “The companies assembled here tonight represent the best holistic CSR strategies--strategies that demonstrate an understanding of the linkages between business operations and society, and the key role they should play in creating a world that is prosperous, sustainable, and just for everybody.” 

Now in its 11th year, the ACE Awards have become a signature AMCHAM program that has been replicated in several other countries in Asia including Malaysia, Singapore, and Vietnam. Special designations were also given to firms that have received ACE awards for five or more consecutive years (Gold), and three to four consecutive years (Silver).
