The Nordic Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (NordCham), in collaboration with other foreign chambers of commerce, will organize a green construction conference in HCMC on September 7.
This event will serve as a platform for fostering discussions among senior industry leaders, experts, and decision-makers from both local and international construction giants.
During the conference, representatives of European investors and keynote speakers will engage in conversations and exchange ideas, with a primary focus on the critical aspects of green construction in Vietnam.
Key subjects will encompass the green building concept and its environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) advantages; the drive toward net-zero emissions and the influence of climate risks; as well as green design and technologies, among others.
According to NordCham, Vietnam’s construction sector has been grappling with urgent environmental challenges in recent years, necessitating immediate attention. Rapid urbanization coupled with outdated practices has led to escalated resource consumption, pollution, and habitat degradation.
The conference is considered a stepping stone on the path to green building practices. This event not only amplifies the voice of businesses in the industry but also stands as a testament to NordCham’s commitment to stimulate dialogue, spark innovation, and cultivate collaboration towards sustainable development in Vietnam, according to a statement of the chamber.
