Sustainable Development is no longer an option but essential to the running of businesses, especially to Bao Minh in participating into global supply chain and in responding to Vietnam Corporate Sustainability Forum. We believe strongly that sustainability and business go hand in hand. Bao Minh has taken the opportunity to welcome 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) of United Nations and align our sustainability strategy along to UN agenda. We do engage in all SDGs, when it is appropriate to Bao Minh business, and out of 17, we recognized 3 Goals as our key targets
- Goal 6: Clean water and Sanitation
- Goal 8: Decent work and Economic Growth
- Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
Bao Minh acted fast to mitigate the adverse environmental impacts of our manufacturing activities, to meet the regulatory requirements, even as they become more stringent. In supplier selection, we prefer cotton yarn suppliers use BCI (Better Cotton Initiatives) cotton, yarn with Oeko-Tex® 100 certification, especially, to work with chemicals and dyes suppliers who have strong commitment with SDGs and convincing evidence of responsible production. We prioritize ISO 14001:2015 over other management system and aim for certification by Dec 2019.
