AMCHAM CSR Excellence Awards
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a key pillar of ethical business. At AMCHAM, we are proud of what our member companies do to give back to Thailand and Thai society, making the business and social environment better for all of us.
To honor these efforts, AMCHAM awards CSR Recognition to companies that demonstrate an advanced understanding of the linkages between business operations and society, and conduct business in a way that creates long-term economic and social value. Our goal is to identify excellence, not just through individual projects or monetary contributions, but through good internal strategy and systems to support CSR and integrate it throughout the company's business practices. In 2020, over 70 AMCHAM members received CSR Recognition status. In addition, each year we grant a few Special Awards for exceptional individual projects that represent the best of CSR programming.
Throughout the year, our CSR Committee shares these best practices with the entire membership, providing support and resources for member companies who are developing or improving their CSR strategies.
Each November, in Thanksgiving week, AMCHAM hosts the AMCHAM CSR Excellence Award Gala Dinner to celebrate our award winners.
