The purpose of green building site visit is to visit and experience how some businesses are locally addressing energy efficiency and sustainable issues in Vietnam. For example, do all office buildings have to rely on air-conditioning? Are all energy efficiency investments expensive with extensive payback periods? The 2 proposed sites include a passively design home office (Gentle House) that does not rely on air conditioners and an international hotel chain (Sheraton Hanoi) where energy efficient investments produced payback periods less than 2 years. The green building site visit provides a unique opportunity to discuss directly with the architect and chief engineer of the buildings as well as to promote a more energy efficient and green construction market by studying through a best practice pool.
The green building site visit is an initiative by EuroCham Green Growth Sector Committee in collaboration with E4G.org – Vietnam Green Building Database and Network.
This event is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about sustainable buildings and getting to know specialists in this sector.
Eurocham members: 150.000 VND.
Non-members: 250.000 VND
