Vietnam is home to over 300 green buildings, but that figure is much lower than the country's potential, according to a construction official at the Vietnam Green Building Week 2023. Van revealed that Ho Chi Minh City took the lead in the number of green buildings at 67 units. She added that Vietnam faces a shortfall of green finance providers, making it difficult for businesses to access green funding. In the year to date, the IFC has invested over US$300 million in green buildings in Vietnam, Diep said. Diep suggested that local businesses develop green buildings in order to easily approach green funding offered by financial institutions.
