This year, the Corporate Sustainability Index (CSI) has 130 indicators covering carbon emission inventory, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and circular economy models, which are stipulated in the Law on Environmental Protection.

The Program Organizing Committee will publicize the assessment scale to help businesses compare themselves with the scores from the Program's Evaluation Council.

Nguyen Quang Vinh, Vice Chairman of VCCI, said, “We apply this Index to select 100 sustainable businesses every year. Actually, it is not for awarding, but more importantly, behind this set of criteria, VCCI wants that more and more businesses use this Index to measure themselves and to check their own health to see where the sustainability of their business is.”

The sustainable business assessment program 2023 receives applications by online form from businesses of all sizes and fields. The deadline for receiving applications is the end of August.
