Eco-Industrial Park Initiative for Sustainable Industrial Zones in Vietnam: Inclusive and sustainable industrial development

You are here

 This project Eco-Industrial Park Initiative for Sustainable Industrial Zones in Vietnam: Inclusive and sustainable industrial development aims to transform the Industrial Zones (IZ) into eco-industrial parks through shared services (transportation, monitoring of emissions) and infrastructures (biogas plant, wastewater treatment) between companies and the local community. 

Project Overview Budget: USD 4.5 million

Donors: Global Environment Facility (GEF), Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)

Main partners: Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) of Vietnam, relevant Ministries and provincial authorities of Ninh Binh, Da Nang, Can Tho

Duration: 3 years

The project aims to transform existing Industrial Zones (IZs) into eco-industrial parks (EIP), in which companies cooperate with each other and with the local community to reduce environmental impacts and production costs. In addition, clean and low-carbon technologies and practices will be demonstrated within the industries to minimize GHG emissions, the release of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and land-based water pollution. Participating companies are supported in accessing financial resources when implementing clean & low carbon technologies. The project has partnered with four institutions that offer preferential access to financial resources, such as investment aid and loans.
