Amcham Thailand Announces Winners for CSR Excellence Awards 2022

On November 22, 2022, The American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand (Amcham) recognized 91 companies at the 2022 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Excellence Awards to honour the CSR efforts of Amcham members in the Kingdom.

Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Varawut Silpa-archa, the US Ambassador to Thailand Robert Godec, Thai Trade Representative M.L.Chayotid Kridakon, and Amcham President Jeff Nygaard presided over the awards ceremony and recognized companies that demonstrate commitment to conducting business responsibly and giving back to local communities.  

Amcham CSR Excellence Recognition is awarded to Amcham member companies for their long-term efforts to support Thailand’s sustainable development.

Qualifying companies have CSR programs with measurable results that create both economic and social gains for a year or more, high levels of employee involvement, and strong strategic partnerships with Thai organizations.

The company mission must also align closely with the goals of their CSR activities.

Member companies are recognized with different tiers for consecutive years of achievement.

Silver level: 3 consecutive years, Gold level: 5 consecutive years, and Platinum level: 10 consecutive years.

This year twenty six Amcham members received awards for more than ten years of consecutive CSR Excellence. In addition, three member companies received special awards for their individual CSR projects:

•    Harmless Harvest won The Ambassador’s Award for Excellence in Thai-US Partnership for their project, Coconuts Agriculture Project (ReCAP) which promotes regenerative agricultural practices among Nam Hom coconut farmers. Presented by US Ambassador Robert Godec, this award recognizes a CSR project that supports innovation in the Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) Economic Model through a US-Thai partnership for the transfer of technology or skills.

Presented by Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Varawut Silpa-archa, this award honours a company that fosters sustainable development in alignment with the principles of the BCG Economic Model.

•    PCS Security and Facility Services won the Excellence in CSR Award for their project, Neighboring Country Colleagues Programme, for fostering and investing in a diverse and inclusive work culture.

“CSR activities strengthen stakeholder engagement and support, whether they are shareholders, business partners, customers, employees, governments, or the broader community. Our best path for success is when community and industry work together,” said Amcham President Jeff Nygaard, Executive Vice President of Operations & Technology of Seagate Technology. “It’s appropriate we come together today, on the eve of Thanksgiving, to celebrate the CSR Excellence Awards and all the good work members are doing to help the broader community here in Thailand.”
