Hanoi (VNA) – Representatives of enterprises and public agencies joined a forum in Hanoi on March 12, exchanging experience and sharing measures to protect the environment and achieve sustainable growth.
Speaking at the event, Chu Thai Thanh , editor-in-chief of the Tai nguyen va Moi truong (natural resources & environment) magazine, highlighted the promotion of clean energy, clean production and clean consumption as a constant requirement in Vietnam's development strategy.
Playing an important role in such process, the business community should boost their awareness on environmental protection, particularly in the exploitation of natural resources, he added.
Their work can contribute to realizing the goal of having between 95 and 100 percent of economic wastewater properly treated by 2020, Thanh said.
Nguyen The Chinh, head of the Institute of Strategy and Policy on Natural Resources and Environment, noted international economic integration and a change in consumer's awareness and behavior in favour of environmental protection have created both pressure and motivation for firms to carry out their social responsibility toward the environment.
Many have invested in eco-friendly technologies, while others are yet to be aware of the importance of the matter, he said.
According to Chinh, being environmentally friendly helps enterprises boost competitiveness, enter foreign markets, and ensure sustainable growth.-VNA
