Our approach to citizenship is based on our commitment to responsible finance — how we define business conduct that is transparent, prudent and dependable. Through our citizenship efforts, we aim to ensure that our actions are in the best interests of our clients, are designed to create economic value, and at the same time are systemically responsible.
Citi focuses on putting the full force of our businesses, resources, products, philanthropy and people to work to improve the communities in which we serve.
Our social responsibilities are an integral part of Citi's business operations, as we recognize that this is an equally important way for us to help improve the quality of life for the people in our community.
Citibank Vietnam's citizenship priorities are microfinance, financial education, community development, and employee volunteerism.
As part of our commitment, we seek to serve the community by being an efficient and responsible bank through microfinance programs. Microfinance programs in Vietnam have helped the poor improve their living standards and contribute to Vietnam‘s economic development.
As its grant sponsor, Citi Foundation annually holds a Citi Microentrepreurship Awards (CMA) recognizing the contributions of hundreds of microentrepreneurs, credit officers and microfinance institutions in eradicating hunger and reducing poverty in Vietnam. The initiative has gained significant achievements and received an increasing attention from Vietnam's government, the State Bank of Vietnam as well as other organizations.
A primary focus of Citi's corporate citizenship activities in Vietnam is financial education. At Citi, we believe we have a responsibility towards helping people understand how to manage their financial resources as a natural extension of the work we do as a global financial institution.
Over the last years, Citi Vietnam has committed to its comprehensive financial education programs to further the cause of creating a more financially literate society. Our initiatives, namely “Smart Start for Students" – a financial education program for low-income secondary school and university students in collaboration with Save The Children and the "Rural Youth Financial Education“ project with The Dariu Foundation have helped to promote financial literacy, and improve the local living standards. Through these programs, more than 7,000 students have benefited.
Every year, Citi employees all over the world are encouraged to go out on a single day and do their best for community. For Global Community Day in Vietnam, we organise a number of community activities.
In 2013, Citi Hanoi colleagues joined with 100 local volunteers to plant 250 flamboyant trees in the coastal city of Hai Phong. We also donated 200 books to a local library.
In Can Gio Biosphere Reserve Park in the south, Citi's staff started off the day in high spirits by attending a lecture about the mangrove forest that is considered as the “green lung" of South Vietnam, covering over 75,740 hectares of both salt water and brackish water mangrove species. Over 100 high school volunteers joined force with us to plant nearly 300 mangrove trees.
By organizing a series of practical activities on Global Community Day 2013, Citi Vietnam supported the government‘s objective of planning "One million green trees for Vietnam".
