Standard Chartered empowers young future leaders in Viet Nam
VGP - A “Sustainability Incubator with Youth” program was launched on August 4 to support the young workforce with practical knowledge about environmental, social and governance (ESG) and sustainability that contribute to Viet Nam’s green future.
The launching ceremony was held by Standard Chartered Bank in collaboration with Dear Our Community (DOC) and the British Chamber of Commerce in Viet Nam (BritCham), with the presence of Minister of State for Energy Security and Net Zero Graham Stuart, as part of his first official trip to Viet Nam.
Through the sponsorship, Standard Chartered will offer financial and expertise support to the youth that inspires and empowers them to become sustainability leaders.
Looking to the future, the youth are the key agents of change for a more sustainable future. With passion, creativity, and potential, they are believed to make a difference in addressing the complex challenges that the world faces today.
In Viet Nam, Standard Chartered has been supporting various initiatives that contribute to the country's green transition, such as financing renewable energy projects, promoting green finance products, and raising awareness on climate change and sustainability among clients, employees and communities.
The program created by Dear Our Community will provide the youth foundational tools, and opportunities to learn, practice and promote sustainability.
It also empowers and equips Vietnamese young leaders with the knowledge, resources, and network to effectively communicate the complexity of sustainability to their peers at workplaces and to aid in the green transition./.
