Vietnam Green Building Week 2022 to take place in October

VOV.VN - The Vietnam Green Building Week 2022 will be held in Ho Chi Minh City by the Ministry of Construction this October as part of efforts to meet the net-zero emissions commitments set out at the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP26).

The event, in response to the World Green Building Week, will attract the participation of over 1,200 delegates from various ministries and provincial authorities, policy makers, as well as both national and international organisations. They will be joined by experts such as construction project owners and operators, construction consultants, leading architects and design professionals.

The Vietnam Green Building Week 2022 is to create a forum for policymakers and experts to share experience and exchange information relating to policymaking, new technologies, products, equipment, and materials to develop energy-efficient buildings.

The event will consist of one plenary session and three thematic sessions discussing and exchanging experience on planning, developing green buildings, and building sustainable urban areas.

In 2020 the Vietnamese Government approved an update on the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), of which, the country committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 9% by 2030. This could be altered to 27% with international support provided through co-operation and mechanisms under the Paris Agreement.

Vietnam has issued a wide range of policies and schemes on renewable energy development, effective use of energy and environmentally friendly material development in an attempt to decrease greenhouse gas emissions.
