PNJ is the only jewelry company listed in the Top 100 most sustainable companies in Vietnam in 2016 and is honored to be among the Top 10. More impressively, in just the first ten months of this year it exceeded its profit plan by 10 per cent, reaching VND510 billion ($22.44 million).

On November 8 in Hanoi, the Phu Nhuan Jewelry Joint Stock Company (PNJ) was honored to be ranked in the Top 10 of the 100 most sustainable Vietnamese companies in 2016.

The recognition ceremony was held by the Business Council for Sustainable Development in collaboration with the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT), the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the Vietnam General Confederation of Labor, and the State Securities Commission.

Evaluations were made under the CIPS Sustainability Index (CSI), comprising 151 highly quantitative criteria established by experts in economics, society, labor, and the environment. The CSI clearly reflects the reputation and brands of businesses, their capacities in attracting human resources, operational processes, development potential in the future, and their social responsibilities and environmental responsibilities.
