The European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (EuroCham) officially launched the first edition of its Greenbook at the EuroCham Green Day, comprising three events dedicated to green business and especially water management solutions, as part of the VIETWATER 2017 event currently underway.

This first publication is dedicated to offering an overview of the state of affairs in Vietnam regarding renewable energy, water and waste management, smart cities, and green buildings. Its contents deal not only with business opportunities but also with regulatory matters and recommendations to improve Vietnam’s green business environment. It also showcases success stories of projects in Vietnam undertaken by European businesses and other EuroCham members, while revealing who’s who in green business expertise in Vietnam in a comprehensive company directory.

EuroCham also launched an interactive Greenbook website, the first of its kind in Vietnam and a platform for companies operating in green business to promote their services and achievements in the country. The Greenbook portal is also a centralized source of information, with news and events on the topic.

The Greenbook launch was followed by the third edition the EuroCham Smart City Series events, with the conference being dedicated to “Water Solutions”. Driven by the EuroCham Green Growth Sector Committee (GGSC), the event was a key activity featuring exclusive updates on the industry and a discussion with top-level experts, business leaders, and government officials dealing with water management, water treatment, and water efficiency in Vietnam.

“These events are at the core of EuroCham’s mission as a chamber that stands for sustainable and environmentally-conscious business,” said Mr. Tomaso Andreatta, Vice Chairman of EuroCham. “We have several members that offer services and products to improve the quality of the environmental and quality of life, while being committed to conducting their business in a socially and environmentally responsible way.”

“EuroCham’s Greenbook showcases their expertise and these principles, presenting tangible evidence of the work EuroCham and its members are carrying out in Vietnam,” he went on. “Our discussions today, at the third event of our EuroCham Smart City Series, were dedicated to water management solutions. This again showed how eager European businesses are to cooperate with Vietnamese authorities, the local business community, and citizens at large for a more sustainable future for the country. EuroCham’s role is to facilitate this cooperation and to offer Vietnam the option to be a more livable country in the future.”  

“We are present at VIETWATER 2017 for the third time as part of our yearly Green Technology Trade Mission to Vietnam, with a very successful European Pavilion presenting the latest technology in the green sector from various leading European countries,” said Ms. Delphine Rousselet, Project Director of the EU-Vietnam Business Network (EVBN).

“As one of the largest European investors in Vietnam, Bosch would like to improve quality of life and help conserve natural resources by implementing green projects in the country,” said Mr. Guru Mallikarjuna, Managing Director of Bosch Vietnam. “Green Challenge and Wastewater Treatment stories are told in the EuroCham Greenbook, which I believe is an important platform to highlight not just Bosch’s but European expertise in general when dealing with the question of sustainability. In this book, we are pleased to share how Bosch’s technology could make a valuable contribution to people, society, and environmental sustainability.”
