Brewing a better Vietnam
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development saw countries committing to do their part in improving water quality and conserving water. With Vietnam experiencing more droughts and rising sea levels, water security has become a growing concern with our nation and the people. At VBL, we recognize our responsibility to utilize and conserve water resources for our neighboring communities. We continue to do this by reducing the amount of water used in production through innovation and change behaviors, ensuring the safe discharge of brewery effluent, and collaborating with stakeholders in our various water stewardship efforts.
The HILP for our middle managers was launched in April 2015 with the facilitation of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) Vietnam
In 2015, HEINEKEN launched a renewed Responsible Marketing Code to replace the existing Rules on Responsible Commercial Communication and Rules on Digital Commercial Communication.
This year marked a milestone for us, as we extended the internal success of our “Enjoy Responsibly Day” program to 1,600 students at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technical Education and Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology
“The number one priority for Heineken Vietnam Brewery is safety; it is not profit, it is not revenue, it is not sales volume. Safety and health is not only an issue for Supply Chain, Brewery and Sales. It is an issue for every function, every department and every employee of Heineken Vietnam Brewery.”
Following the launch of the HEINEKEN Six Behaviours in 2015, we instituted the “Put Safety First” project.
In Vietnam, clean piped water only reaches around 10% of the rural households.
For some of us, receiving VND 15 million per year is not a huge sum.
