Sustainability

GROWTH & RENEWAL

While sustainability often focuses on a company’s impact on the local and global community, we think the starting point has to be the people behind the scenes. Creating a positive work culture with a healthy work-life balance allows us to contribute more to our clients and the world around us. At Openasia, we see developing our people as key to growing the company as a whole. We want to help everyone at Openasia become the best possible version of themselves, because this allows them to positively impact their surroundings and drive our business forward. By focusing Openasia’s vision of sustainability on the three Ps (Planet, People and Profit) with People at the center, we can improve ourselves, our company and our world.

PEOPLE

We believe happy employees are vital to our wider success at Openasia, so part of our mission is creating an environment where our people can live fulfilling lives. This means giving our employees the latitude they need to find balance in their lives through mental and physical pursuits. We also try to foster a culture of kindness and honesty among our employees to create a respectful and positive environment, so we encourage everyone to share their hopes, dreams and successes with each other. Doing so creates a workplace where our employees care about each other’s happiness and success, which serves to encourage individual and company development.

PLANET

Openasia hopes to lead our people by example in caring for our natural environment. This means inspiring our employees to respect their surroundings and find a harmonious balance in all their interactions with other living beings and the natural world. We recognize the enormity of the environmental challenge facing our world, but truly believe we can make positive changes as a company and as individuals.

PROFIT

At Openasia, we believe profit can’t be solely measured in zeros and ones, but in our overall impact on the world, our employees and the communities around us. To that end, we look to create circular profits, where outcomes can be turned around and used to sustainably fuel inputs. This means preserving Vietnamese values and heritage in all our work while investing resources into giving our employees opportunities to grow. This makes good business sense for Openasia as a company, our employees and the world around us.
