The Covid-19 pandemic has given rise to global trends such as going green, circular economy, digital economy, reduction of natural resource exploitation, replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energy, and protection and restoration of the natural ecosystem. Green growth has become an inevitable trend and a new approach in economic development in order to achieve comprehensive prosperity for countries around the world.
This is also considered a driving force for businesses having the same development mindset which is to pursue green solutions to seek optimal values as well as sustainable development in the future.
In addition to solutions for shifting to renewable energy, and cutting carbon emissions and water use, the increased use of environmentally friendly materials will contribute to the green growth process. In particular, NS BlueScope Vietnam’s green-labelled corrugated roofing sheets are good for the factories that care about circular economy.
Mr. Vo Minh Nhut, Country President of NS BlueScope Vietnam, said profit is important, but it should come from the right and responsible things, and the sustainable values created for the community, the economy and the planet. Green growth is what businesses should do to achieve the above sustainable goals.
An important factor for the green growth strategy is the close partnership of multiple parties, including businesses and government. In particular, corporate pioneers need to give inspiration to other businesses along the way.
NS BlueScope Lysaght, a subsidiary of BlueScope, has entered into strategic partnerships with GSB and GreenViet to create conditions for the Vietnamese architecture sector to gain access to energy balance trends in the world.
Energy balance trends in architectural design will help cut carbon emissions and energy consumption, thus combating climate change and boosting sustainable development, especially for emerging countries with fast urbanization like Vietnam. Currently, NS BlueScope Lysaght Vietnam is a pioneer in steel solutions for industrial and civil works, ensuring energy balance for buildings in Vietnam.
