In response to climate change, sustainable development has become an imperative for the world. This includes Vietnam, which is one of the five most vulnerable countries to climate change.
At COP26, the nation made a strong commitment to the international community to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Following this, the country has stepped up its efforts to fulfill this with the tasks outlined in Decision No.888/QD-TTg from Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, the National Strategy on Climate Change for the period to 2050, and the National Strategy for Green Growth for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision towards 2050.
This is a weighty task for Vietnam as a developing country with an economy in transformation. Therefore, it requires high levels of determination and effort from ministries, branches, localities, the business community, and the nation's people.
In this context, Vietnam Investment Review will host the Sustainable Development 2023 conference themed Taking Responsibility, Taking Action at the Pullman Hanoi Hotel (40 Cat Linh, Ba Dinh, Hanoi) on November 15. The conference will cover a range of topics related to activities to promote sustainable development in Vietnam.
There will be two panel discussions where regulators, economic experts, and business leaders will share their efforts to implement sustainable solutions and respond to climate change. At the same time, the speakers will also offer recommendations on sustainable development and completing green transformation strategies for businesses in Vietnam.
The workshop will be attended by leaders of the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, representatives of the Asian Development Bank, the Center for Natural Resources and Environment Communication, the Department of Climate Change, the United Nations Development Programme, and the Vietnam Institute of Directors.
The business representatives will include SABECO, Phuc Khang Construction and Investment JSC, Thanh Thanh Cong-Bien Hoa JSC, DKSH Vietnam, Loc Troi Group, Keppel Vietnam, Hoi An South Development, HSBC Bank Vietnam, AEON Vietnam, DUYTAN Plastic Recycling, Nestlé Vietnam, Home Credit, Vinamilk, and Grab Vietnam.
On this occasion, VIR has also organised a recognition ceremony for enterprises accompanying the cause of sustainable development to offer appreciation to both domestic and foreign groups that have supported VIR's sustainable development and corporate social responsibility initiatives over the past five years.
