STEERING THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IN VIETNAM TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE GROWTH
The construction industry is a vital part of Vietnam's economy due to rapid urbanisation and industrialisation. To minimise the negative impact on the environment, the government has announced initiatives aimed at promoting sustainable growth, including the Green Building Development Program and the Sustainable Cities Program. It is clear that the construction industry has a key role to play in building sustainable, high quality buildings while being affordable and efficient.
Key Focus For Sustainable Growth
To achieve sustainable growth, it is critical to focus on prioritising sustainability across the entire building lifecycle through:
- Prioritising energy efficiency and carbon reduction in buildings with an energy-efficient design.
- Embracing green building certification programs to ensure that projects meet the highest environmental standards.
- Selecting sustainable building materials and methods that minimise environmental impact.
- Prioritising the health and well-being of building occupants through the adoption of healthy building practices.
By implementing these areas, they will realise several benefits, namely:
- Attracting more customers who are increasingly concerned about environmental impact and sustainability.
- Reducing operating costs through energy efficiency and waste reduction.
- Improving the health and well-being of building occupants, which leads to increased productivity and reduced absenteeism.
