The event will feature conferences, dialogues, and exhibitions on new construction policies, materials, equipment, and technologies.

Green Building Week aims to create a platform for sharing experience and exchanging information on construction policies, promote urban development projects with lower environmental impact, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and conserve natural resources. Through practical activities, Vietnam wants to show its commitment to environmental protection.

Associate Professor Pham Thuy Loan, Deputy Director of the Vietnam National Institute of Architecture, said: “Despite the upside in urbanization and growth, the construction industry is facing problems. The things we build, which could exist for hundreds or even thousands of years, must be environment-friendly and energy-saving. And we must take action in response to climate change and other environmental challenges.”
