It requires the engagement of different stakeholders to ensure that carbon neutrality is achieved realistically and sustainably. Amid international efforts against climate change, Vietnam’s public and private sectors have made commitments to reduce their impact on the environment in the context that the country is among one of the most affected by global warming But how can carbon neutrality be achieved realistically and sustainably? Bamboo is biomass that captures CO 2 from the atmosphere effectively. Carbon neutrality is a state of net zero carbon emission, by cutting greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible, with any remaining emissions re-absorbed from the atmosphere, by oceans and forests for instance. Replacing polluting coal, gas, and oil-fired power with energy from renewable sources, such as wind or solar, would dramatically reduce carbon emissions. As well as deep and widespread cuts in emissions, for carbon neutrality to be … [Read more...] about Vietnam attempts to realize carbon neutrality commitment
Seizing the opportunity laid out by its clean energy resources and phasing out coal could be key for Vietnam’s green growth path. Vietnam’s Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has set a deadline for sectors to build plans for their sustainable development within the first quarter (Q1) of this year as part of efforts to materialize the country’s sustainable development. Vietnam’s Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh speaks at COP26 in Glasgow, the UK in November 2021.

Accordingly, authorized agencies are tasked with eight issues, namely energy transition, reducing greenhouse gas emissions; lowering methane emissions; developing electric cars; planting forests to absorb carbon dioxide; building construction materials and urban development suitable for green and sustainable … [Read more...] about [Net-zero strategy] Which way is possible for Vietnam’s net zero journey?
