HCMC takes lead in greenhouse gas emissions

September 15, 2023

HCMC – HCMC, despite being the driving force behind Vietnam’s economy, also holds the dubious distinction of being the country’s largest greenhouse gas emitter, said Deputy Prime Minister Le Minh Khai. Despite making some strides in environmental protection measures, Khai noted that the city’s economy remains predominantly linear and has not yet embraced circularity. HCMC Party Secretary Nguyen Van Nen shed light on the city’s challenges, including climate change, traffic congestion, and environmental degradation. HCMC is fostering an enabling environment to encourage businesses to collaborate in building a green growth economy, ultimately aiming for net-zero emissions. The HEF, an annual international event organized by the People’s Committee of HCMC, has attracted 1,500 delegates this year.
