The Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (BeLuxCham), the Embassy of Belgium in Vietnam, and DEEP C Industrial Zones are proud to announce the upcoming conference, “ESG: Evolving to the Next Level”, which will take place November 30 – December 1, 2023 at the prestigious Pullman Saigon Centre Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. This two-day conference will focus on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) best business practices, particularly as they relate to implementation of the EU-VN Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and Vietnam’s commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The conference will also celebrate 50 years of diplomatic relationship between Vietnam and Belgium, Luxembourg and Vietnam, as well as the 20th anniversary of BeLuxCham in Vietnam.
ESG practices have recently gained prominence in Vietnam, largely driven by the Vietnamese government’s efforts to promote sustainable investment and development in addressing the country’s numerous social and environmental challenges and opportunities. The “ESG: Evolving to the Next Level” conference aims to promote awareness and understanding of ESG best practices within the Vietnam context among private sector and government stakeholders, with a focus on fostering collaboration and growth between Belgium, Luxembourg, greater Europe, and Vietnam.
Belgian and Luxembourg companies in Vietnam are actively contributing to ESG and through this 2-day conference, BeLuxCham, together with the support of the Belgian Embassy in Vietnam and the Luxembourg Embassy in Thailand, wants to show the Vietnamese market how the companies are building up their ESG knowledge and mindset.
BeLuxCham Vietnam aims to show what ESG in all its facets stands for, how the EVFTA enables focus and awareness of ESG in Vietnam, and how companies can learn from each other, from clear examples and case studies and how to start implementing ESG in all its different aspects.
According to the Vietnam ESG Readiness Report 2022, conducted by PwC Vietnam and the Vietnam Institute of Directors (VIOD), 61% of companies are yet to commit to ESG and cite a lack of knowledge as the key barrier. Therefore, during this 2-day conference, BeLuxCham will focus on introducing ESG, and the EVFTA and give clear examples and case studies on what has been done by both Belgian and Luxembourg companies. Break-out sessions will focus on every aspect of ESG and highlight industries like agriculture, logistics, and transportation and bring speakers from Vietnam and Europe together for information sharing.
Please join us in this event and celebrate, learn, and share together with participants from all over the world the anniversaries, and what is still to come to increase growth for the collaboration between our loved countries.
