International organizations also assess that Vietnam is among the five countries severely affected by climate change. However, in such circumstances, many businesses, including AAA, continue to maintain production, business activities and stable growth.
Moreover, when sustainable development is placed at the center of the economic development of many countries, it requires businesses to raise their awareness of environmental protection and operate according to the development trend of the world, the organization committee has added this criterion to evaluate businesses.
