  • Gray and black water recycling
  • Energy via solar rooftop panels
  • Heat / steam sharing
  • Passive architecture

Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022 - Waste & Sustainability

Circular economy

9:00- 10:30 - The way to a net zero factory

  •  Achieve zero waste in production by reducing byproduct consumption and introducing circular economy solutions,

  • Linear life cycles are common in many products. To enable circular economy in the downstream stages, how can we influence the upstream process?

14:45 - 15:45 - EPR – The law supporting circular economy:  To support the creation of a recycling industry, the EPR Law envisages the establishment of an environmental protection fund. What can we learn from European countries that have already implemented an EPR law?

Green buildings

9:00 - 11:30 - Why certify green buildings?:  At COP 26, Vietnam committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 9 percent domestically and 27 percent internationally by 2030 as per its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). This discussion will focus on:

10:45 - 11:45 - A one health food production approach: Greener and more sustainable production of food, animal feed, and crops requires an understanding of the links between environment, animal and plant health, and consumer health. This presentation will also discuss the link between a healthy animal and a healthy product.

13:00 -14:00 - Green farming systems - best C02 reduction practices: We must focus on green solutions that reduce our CO2 footprint while at the same time being innovative enough to ensure farmers' profitability is not compromised.

9:00 - 10:15 - Low Carbon Hydrogen: Low Carbon Hydrogen holds significant promise to help meet global energy demand while contributing to climate action goals. It has also made a much remarked appearance in the latest drafts of the PDP8 in Vietnam. This panel discussion will explore why Low Carbon Hydrogen plays an important role for Vietnam as an alternative energy and what are associated opportunities and challenges. The panelists will also share the lessons learned from other geographies, particularly Europe, on key projects, infrastructure development and ecosystems/collaborations. Finally, they will discuss key elements of the roadmap to accelerate and scale up Low Carbon Hydrogen in Vietnam.

10:30 - 11:45 - Waste to energy vs other sources (onshore wind, biomass, ways to decarbonise power):

 • Different fuels and carbon performance

• Competition for using certain fuels from other fields. Who should get it?

• Why is it so difficult to implement?

• Scope for growth in Vietnam

13:00 - 14:00 - Solutions for Green and Sustainable TourismEach of the speakers to give examples of their company strategy and implementation of green and sustainable solutions adopted by them.

Climate fresk 

8:30 - 11:30 - Climate fresk is meant to raise awareness during an event. All the Fresk cards are already placed on a vertical support with a cover in front. The person in charge must then "snap" passers-by and invite them to ask themselves questions about climate change, and illustrate their point live by removing the covers in front of the appropriate cards.

Student competition - Demo Day

  • Closing remarks

13:00 - 14:30 - Digital entrepreneurship & climate change with GIZPeople experience climate change differently depending on where they live. Like many countries in the global south with low-lying coastal regions, Vietnam is threatened by rising sea levels, typhoons, and floods that could have disastrous consequences for its ecosystem, economy, and wellbeing. Green technologies must be developed and adopted by the government, state-owned enterprises, private businesses, and entrepreneurs in Vietnam to mitigate climate change. However, Vietnamese green technology suffers from a lack of entrepreneurs and funding.

The panel discussion will discuss ways to promote green tech startups in Vietnam. In the research sprint on "Green Technology, Entrepreneurship & Climate," we'll explore the obstacles facing Vietnamese green technology entrepreneurs and what inhibits or encourages investment.  

14:00 - 15:00
