Corporate Social Responsibility

For us at VNG, social responsibility means much more than successful survival in the energy industry and the safeguarding of viable long-term jobs. Together with committed members of the public, we are also taking responsibility for the common good. We believe that improving development opportunities for children, juveniles and young adults is a vital sphere of activity whose importance will continue to grow.

Through our own initiatives, we aim to promote the recognition and appreciation by society for work that is done on a voluntary or honorary basis. Specifically, the VNG Foundation supports charitable and social projects in fields such as culture and the arts, science, education, social issues and universities.
