The award was presented by Ambassador DeSombre who observed that businesses like Tilleke & Gibbins “have shown great resilience during these challenging times and through ongoing investment in people, education, technology, and healthcare, made a positive contribution to the Thai economy.”
AMCHAM CSR Excellence Awards are given to AMCHAM member companies in recognition of 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 the CSR activities.
