HCMC - Best performing foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs) who have successfully applied solutions in their businesses for the sake of sustainable development were honored in the Saigon Times Top 40 Awards-Green Values 2010 ceremony in HCMC on Tuesday.

The eighth edition of the Saigon Times Top 40 Awards, organized by the Saigon Times Group’s two English publications The Saigon Times Daily and The Saigon Times Weekly, honored 36 FIEs from cities and provinces nationwide for their outstanding ideas and effective applications towards energy efficiency and environment protection.

“Given that Vietnam and the world as a whole are struggling with energy deficiency and climate change, it’s of great significance to honor the FIEs that have effectively applied energy efficiency ideas to the business and production processes and carried out various activities to contribute to the community and society,” Nguyen Thi Hong, vice chairwoman of the HCMC People’s Committee, spoke to the award winners at the award ceremony.

Hong described the non-profit Saigon Times Top 40 Awards as a prestigious prize which has gained a reputation among the international investors community since its first launch in 2003.

In order to be recognized in the selection, those companies were required to meet this year’s criteria such as the implementation of energy saving practices in production and free from environmental pollution allegations over the past five years, among others.

Matthew Sukumaran, executive director of operations and planning for RMIT International University Vietnam, said on the sidelines of the award ceremony that the university was having practices and applying new technologies for saving the energy at the campus for the young students to learn about conservation and energy management.

Vice Chairwoman Hong also encouraged award winners to keep moving on with their sustainable development strategies for the benefit of the economy while ensuring business efficiency.
