Secretariat

The Secretariat of British Chamber of Commerce Vietnam, started as a luncheon club in 1991, was first licensed in 1998 as the British Business Group Vietnam (BritCham Vietnam). We were the first ever Foreign Business Group to obtain formal recognition in Vietnam. The BritCham Vietnam has now evolved into the British Chamber of Commerce Vietnam which is affiliated with the British Chambers of Commerce in the UK and around the world.

Today, we are a community of more than 500 members, whose names mean world class reputation. The Secretariat is a dynamic and professional team, who are dedicated to promote our members’ business interests in Vietnam, through various business, social, charity and advocacy events and activities.

very year, the team works hard to secure funds for charity. Over the history of our operation, the Secretariat has raised more than VND 20 Billion to support education, healthcare, people at disadvantages, and wildlife protection. Our tradition of giving back to the community is something we honour and will keep working on.

Looking into the future, BritCham Vietnam continues our legacies and looks to expand the horizon of providing stronger supports to our members, adding more values to the community, and being the top influencer in the business network between Vietnam and the UK

    Webinar No.1 – ACHIEVING NET ZERO, CARBON MARKETS AND THEIR ROLE IN REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS, PERSPECTIVES FROM VIETNAM AND THE ASIA REGION
    September 28, 2021 3:00 pm - September 28, 2021 4:00 pm

    Standard Chartered Bank – BritCham Sustainability Webinar Series:

    Webinar No.1 – ACHIEVING NET ZERO, CARBON MARKETS AND THEIR ROLE IN REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS, PERSPECTIVES FROM VIETNAM AND THE ASIA REGION

    Organisations have increasingly joined the sustainability movement in large numbers as an initiative towards sustainable development and healthy living. Conversations around carbon neutrality – with a focus on becoming ‘net-zero’ – have been circulating in recent years, promising businesses a solution to combat climate issues.

    The concept of carbon neutrality was first strengthened by the Paris Agreement in 2015, whose main goal was to limit global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By adopting the initiative, corporates help forge a greener future through investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency, or sustainability projects that balance out carbon emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

    Webinar No.1 – ACHIEVING NET ZERO, CARBON MARKETS AND THEIR ROLE IN REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS, PERSPECTIVES FROM VIETNAM AND THE ASIA REGION

    Organisations have increasingly joined the sustainability movement in large numbers as an initiative towards sustainable development and healthy living. Conversations around carbon neutrality – with a focus on becoming ‘net-zero’ – have been circulating in recent years, promising businesses a solution to combat climate issues.

    The concept of carbon neutrality was first strengthened by the Paris Agreement in 2015, whose main goal was to limit global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By adopting the initiative, corporates help forge a greener future through investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency, or sustainability projects that balance out carbon emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

    Six years into the Agreement, and the efforts were proven fruitful as more than 115 countries have submitted a new or updated NDC (Nationally determined contributions) and 6,000 major corporates have pledged to reduce gas emissions. In 2019, Britain became the first G7 country to pass net-zero emission laws, urging leaders worldwide to follow suit. As technological progress further advances and the cost of renewable energy has declined over the years, going green is no longer seen as a trade-off for economic growth, especially in Asian booming economies. In its latest discussion with COP26 President Alok Sharma, Vietnam has affirmed its goal to reach net-zero emissions in the near future, with a heavy emphasis on sustainable consumption and the green transition process in all economic sectors.

    ‘Achieving Net Zero, Carbon Markets and Their Role in Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Perspectives from Vietnam and the Asia Region’ is the first webinar in a series of events co-organised by Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) and British Chamber of Commerce Vietnam (BritCham) to promote sustainable development in Vietnam and the application of ESG among businesses. This will support participating businesses and organisations devise effective strategies for their sustainable development. These events will involve key relevant stakeholders from the government, regulators and industry thought leaders.

    Janak Vadgama
    Mental Health Counsellor and Psychologist

    I’m a British Mental Health Counsellor and Psychologist who has lived and worked in South East Asia since 2005. I see clients for many different reasons, such as depression and anxiety, suicidal feelings, trauma, finding meaning and purpose in life, cultural adjustment, and simply ‘needing someone to talk to’. I’m very happy to see clients from any cultural background, as long as they can speak English. My approach is existential and client-centred. My goal is not to direct or advise my clients, but rather to collaborate with them to help them to discover the possibilities personally available to them, and support them to find a more contented way to be themselves through making their own choices and changes. To do this, I try to understand how my clients see themselves and the world around them in order to help them to better grasp their problems, gain new perspectives and self-empowerment, and find their own solutions or ways of moving forward.

    August 18, 2021 10:00 am - August 18, 2021 11:30 am

    The fourth wave of Covid-19 has brought prolonged lockdowns and significant disruptions to businesses and supply chains.

    Come along and join BritCham’s Women in Business series 2020 on 23rd November
    We all have the capacity to recover quickly and effectively from challenges and crisis, but why does it seem that some of us are more resilient than others? What does resilience look like for women in the workplace? Do we need to be more resilient than men, or resilient to different types of challenges?

    🥇 BRITCHAM FUN RUN – RUN FOR VIETNAM 2020! 🥇

    Since 2000, we have raised more than VND 11 billion to benefit charities throughout Vietnam. We welcome 10,000 participants annually and this year will be one to remember!

    Our Fun Run this year will be held both in Ho Chi Minh City (15th November) and in Hanoi (29th November). We are excited to welcome representatives from the British Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City and several Vietnamese celebrities that you might recognise.

    The generous support of over 30 partners and sponsors has allowed us to secure 2 billion VND, and with your participation, we are hoping to raise even more money to support the most vulnerable in Vietnam – many of whom have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. 100% of your donations will be distributed between 4 areas: Healthcare, People with disabilities, Education and Wildlife protection.

    Our fantastic event allows you to have fun, get fit and most importantly, to help disadvantaged groups in our community. Your involvement means more to us than ever this year.

    Please find the official information of the BRITCHAM FUN RUN – RUN FOR VIETNAM 2020 below:
