AmCham CARES

 

CSR Excellence and Social Impact

 

AmCham CARES recognizes AmCham member companies in Singapore that have demonstrated a strong understanding of the linkages between business operations and society, and that conduct business in a way that creates both long-term economic and social value. The program is a platform to benchmark, share best practices, and discover ways to improve companies’ current corporate social responsibility programs.

Objectives of AmCham CARES Award

 

AmCham CARES is not a competition. It requires companies to meet certain criteria with their corporate programs. AmCham CARES is a great way to benchmark, share best practices, and look at ways to improve companies’ current CSR programs.

 

  • Raises awareness of CSR and corporate citizenship among AmCham members;
  • Recognizes firms with best practice programs;
  • Gathers information about best practices to share with all AmCham members; and
  • Demonstrates continued AmCham leadership among chambers in Singapore.
