ESGs & Climate Consulting partners with The Saigon Times to deliver first-ever Towards Net-Zero ESG Forum in Vietnam

ESGs & Climate Consulting, a leading force in green transition solutions, announced its instrumental role in guiding The Saigon Times towards achieving a historic milestone: the first-ever Towards net-zero carbon ESG Forum in Vietnam. 

The event gathered experts and leaders from the public sector to private sector

Held on June 13th, 2024, at the Rex Hotel in HCMC, the forum served as a catalyst for igniting vital conversations and solidifying Vietnam’s commitment to a sustainable future.

Sustainability has become a well-known concept among businesses now. With the government’s commitment to achieve Net-zero goal in 2050, the pressure puts significantly on business leaders and policy-makers.

In recent years, initiatives to educate, inspire, and promote the green transition increasingly appear. A major question remains: “Do these events also contribute to carbon emission and slow down the progress?”

ESGs & Climate Consulting a company with 14 years experience in helping more than 200 organizations all-over-the-world to assess their carbon footprint always wants to enforce the motto: Every sustainability movement should be sustainable themselves, first.
