With its intensive investment in and long-term commitment to Viet Nam, Hanwha Life Vietnam has developed a sustainable business model that balances the goals of both business and contributing to society.

With "Clean up the Mekong River" campaign in the province of Vinh Long, Hanwha Life Vietnam wants to protect the local environment and improve the quality of life of the Vietnamese people

Improving environment and quality of people’s lives

The first Korean insurance company to come to Viet Nam, during its 10-year journey of development, Hanwha Life has always insisted on strategies for sustainable development. Together with business development strategies, Hanwha Life also constantly strives to address the country’s priority issues, of which safeguarding the environment and improving people's lives are also its two main CSR goals.

It recently launched a campaign called "Clean up the Mekong River" in the province of Vinh Long.

The river is important to the lives of people not only in the Mekong Delta but also Vietnam in general.

As part of the campaign, Hanwha donated two solar-powered boats to Vinh Long for cleaning the Mekong.

Powered and propelled by the Hanwha Q CELLS’ Q.PEAK solar modules, the boats will be used to scoop up waste in the river while not emitting any greenhouse gases or other pollutants.

The campaign has been acclaimed by provincial authorities, the Government and the public since environmental pollution is an alarming issue in Vietnam.

Let us see how the Hanwha vessels, the first solar-powered boats to scoop up waste in the Mekong, operate in the link below:

“Clean up the Mekong River is a truly meaningful project to protect the local environment and improve the quality of life of the Vietnamese people,” Back Jong Kook, CEO cum Chairman of Member Council of Hanwha Life Vietnam, said.

“This activity once again underlines the fact that the Hanwha Group and Hanwha Life Vietnam always want to contribute to Vietnam as a member of the local community.”
