Viet Nam Social Enterprise Casebook 2016

Over the past 30 years, economic reform has created opportunities for enterprises and organisations from various economic sectors to develop and contribute to economic growth, poverty alleviation, and improvement in living standards. However, alongside economic reform, a number of social and environmental issues have emerged and increased in terms of quantity and scale. This requires governments to focus on economic growth associated with sustainable development and environmental protection, ensuring equal and full access to public services for the entire population.

Fostering the Growth of the Social Impact Business Sector in Viet Nam 2018

The ambitions of the 2030 Agenda demand that we work together, across sectors, to transform the world we live in and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is precisely why such a central and crucial role is recognised for the private sector, to work with civil society and Government, and help drive change and accelerate results. Increasingly, businesses are realizing that investing in ways that protect the environment and advance social outcomes is not just an act of philanthropy or charity but also makes good business sense. Businesses which balance a social mission with profit have a direct and lasting impact on the communities in which they operate and can create the value necessary to grow their business, whilst scaling up their social impact.
