It is fun­da­men­tal to the phi­los­o­phy of The Amer­i­can Cham­ber Of Com­merce In Thailand that good ethics and good busi­ness are syn­ony­mous. AMCHAM be­lieves that Amer­i­can busi­ness plays an im­por­tant role as a cat­a­lyst for pos­i­tive so­cial change by pro­mot­ing hu­man wel­fare and the prin­ci­ples of free en­ter­prise. AMCHAM rec­og­nizes that Amer­i­can com­pa­nies al­ready set the high­est stan­dards for eth­i­cal busi­ness prac­tices. We en­cour­age mem­bers to com­mu­ni­cate in­for­ma­tion about their ex­ist­ing pro­grams and prac­tices rel­a­tive to good cor­po­rate cit­i­zen­ship in the mar­kets in which they op­er­ate.

AMCHAM en­dorses the fol­low­ing val­ues:

• Com­pli­ance with all ap­pli­ca­ble laws. • Good cor­po­rate cit­i­zen­ship. • Re­spect for the in­di­vid­ual and dig­nity of the worker. • Train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion for our em­ploy­ees. • En­vi­ron­men­tally re­spon­si­ble busi­ness prac­tices. • Im­proved mar­ket ac­cess and pro­mo­tion of in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty rights. High stan­dards of pro­fes­sional and busi­ness ethics.
