Vietnam Green Building Week 2020 aims to create a forum for ideas sharing, information and experience exchanges on policy development. It is also a platform to introduce new technologies, products, equipment, building materials to develop green and energy-efficient buildings.
The event targets promoting urban development projects towards reducing green house gas emissions and environmental impacts for a better living environment.
Besides, it demonstrates efforts and actions of Vietnam in implementing international commitments on climate change and sustainable development.
Green Building Week 2020 will lay the ground for an annual event of the construction sector. The event will consist of technical seminars, field trip to a green building, policy dialogue session, plenary session, exhibition of buildings, materials, equipment and technologies to demonstrate the transformation of construction market towards the green, environmentally-friendly and energy efficient construction for national and international enterprises.
Earlier, the Vietnamese government pledged to reduce 9% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The construction sector will implement the commitment through policies and development strategy in the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050. The development of green and energy efficient buildings is therefore an inevitable trend and solution.
In fact, in recent years, real estate developers and construction enterprises have made significant changes towards supplying more energy-efficient and environment-friendly properties to the market.
The annual Vietnam Green Building Week is therefore expected to raise the awareness of stakeholders in promoting green and energy efficient projects.
