Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam Beverage (Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam) entered its second three-year partnership with the Vietnam National Union of Students (VNUS) for the 2018-2020 period on May 22.

This second partnership marks the long-term commitment of Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam to accompanying young Vietnamese with a variety of voluntary initiatives and campaigns nationwide.

The partnership extension will continue the outstanding achievements in the 2015-2017 period. Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam will continue to accompany young people by providing financial and free-product sponsorship to volunteers in the “Green Summer” and “Support the Students in University Entrance Exams” campaigns and other programs helping to build pride and patriotism among students, including “Students and the Country’s Islands” and “Vietnamese Youth - The Peace Story”, academic playgrounds, and others activities, to encourage creativity among students and commemorate traditional days for Vietnamese students.

The partnership’s main focus lays on the Green Summer campaign, to which the company and the Revive brand provide support under the theme “Sweat of Goodness”, which aims at helping young people grow to their fullest and at the same time cultivating a sense of responsibility towards the community. Thousands of meaningful values for the community come with the sweat of young people.

“The Green Summer campaign has been one of the priorities for VNUS for many years,” said Mr. Nguyen Minh Triet, Standing Deputy Chairman of VNUS. “It offers a platform for students nationwide to practice the ‘Five standards of students’ movement, to develop and grow into a good citizen. Creative startups are the new trend within Industry 4.0 and we hope that our cooperation with Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam will create new programs and activities aimed at building a ‘new’ student who welcomes integration and is willing to contribute to society.”

“From its very first day in Vietnam, Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam has been and always will be a loyal friend and supporter of Vietnamese youth, and the Vietnam National Student Union has been a bridge to help us connect and listen to youth in Vietnam in the most thorough and effective way,” said Mr. Uday Shankar Sinha, CEO of Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam. “Ever since the partnership was established, together we have organized various activities that encourage youngsters to live and develop to their fullest and at the same time help them to gain a sense of responsibility towards the community. For us, being a good corporate citizen is not limited to just legal compliance and producing high-quality products. In fact, a good corporate citizen also needs to contribute to the sustainable development of the community, and supporting youth is one of our priorities.”

The previous partnership from 2015 to 2017 also saw the construction of 51 clean water systems in 12 provinces and island districts nationwide, 50 public fitness facilities in Hanoi and the Mekong Delta, and many houses, children’s playgrounds, and bookshelves for those in remote areas. In 2017, the clean water systems for the community sponsored by Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam via Green Summer and the “Mizuiku - I Love Clean Water” program were voted one of seven “Outstanding Youth Work of the Year” by the Standing Board of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee, acknowledging the enthusiasm and creativity of youth in creating meaningful values for the community.
