AMCHAM CSR Excellence (ACE) 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 ACE 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 2019, 66 AMCHAM members received ACE 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 ACE Awards Gala Dinner to celebrate our award winners. The 2019 ACE Awards Gala Dinner was held at Shangri-La Bangkok on November 18, 2019.

ACE Recognition

AMCHAM awards ACE Recognition each year to companies whose overall business practices meet a benchmark of CSR excellence. In addition, we recognize different tiers for companies who receive this award in consecutive years:

ACE Silver level: 3 consecutive years
ACE Gold level: 5 consecutive years
ACE Platinum level: 10 consecutive years

In 2019, we are proud to announce the first firms being recognized at the Platinum level.

ACE Special Awards

Our ACE Special Awards honor individual projects that represent excellence in CSR programming. The 2019 special award categories are:

♦ Excellence in a CSR Project
♦ Excellence in Project Supporting Thai Development
♦ The Ambassador’s Award for Excellence in Thai-U.S. Partnership

People's Choice Award

In 2019, we are introducing a new People’s Choice Award, to be decided by general vote by AMCHAM members. This year, companies eligible for Platinum status have been invited to participate, and we will be sharing more information about their projects via the AMCHAM website and social media. Voting will open on October 16.
