Contributing significantly to the socio-economic development of Vietnam
As one of the world’s biggest consumer goods companies, P&G has always been a pioneer in sustainable development by delivering the comforts of home, education, clean water and improving health and hygiene facilities for people in need, as well as empowering gender equality.
Over the 27 years in Vietnam, P&G has improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged Vietnamese people through many long-term programs. Its focus is providing access to clean drinking water, disaster relief support, educational scholarships to students, financial aid and women empowerment to help them take care of their families and develop themselves.
In Vietnam, P&G is taking deliberate action to accelerate equality & inclusion for all, including Gender Equality and LGBTQ+. Recently, at the UN Women Vietnam WEPs (Women Empowerment Principles) Awards 2022 organized by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality & the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) and Vietnam Women Entrepreneur Council (VWEC), P&G Vietnam was proudly named the first runner-up in the “Gender Inclusive Workplace” award category.
