2017 was the first year Hanoi initiated the programme to evaluate and recognise green energy facilities. The title "Green Energy" honours facilities and businesses using green energy as well as popularising and replicating typical energy-saving solutions for similar facilities and models, promoting efficient use of energy in accordance with the goal of green, stable, and sustainable economic growth.
In 2019, MM Mega Market Thang Long won the four-star level, among 11 construction works recognised for using green energy. The facilities that earn the title will be granted a certificate corresponding to the levels achieved, and Hanoi People's Committee will provide technical assistance to improve energy efficiency, upgrade the title recognition, and provide consultancy to participate in national or ASEAN-level energy efficiency competitions.

“We are honoured that MM Mega Market Thang Long was awarded the Green Energy title for the second time. Currently, we are applying many clean and effective energy management solutions at 19 MM centres across the country. These solutions not only help MM save costs and help reduce CO2 emissions, but also create a safe shopping space for the health of our customers, as well as our employees working here,” said a Mega Market Vietnam representative.
Previously, in 2014, MM Mega Market Hiep Phu in Ho Chi Minh City was the only Vietnamese business representative to win the second prize "Effective Energy Management in Small and Medium Buildings" in the Southeast Asia region by the ASEAN Energy Organization.
At the time, MM Hiep Phu was the first unit of Vietnam to apply and operate a solar lighting system, with the principle of amplifying the light from the roof with light pipes using natural light. This technology helps the centre save an average of more than VND300 million ($13,040) a year on average, and reduce nearly 220 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
Besides lighting systems using the most advanced technology, MM Mega Market Vietnam is currently deploying a series of solutions for food storage systems and air conditioning systems at all of its centres, creating a friendly shopping place for human health and the environment.
