Eco-industrial parks foster inclusive and sustainable industrial development in Viet Nam

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), Viet Nam’s Ministry of Planning and Investment and the Viet Nam Academy of Social Sciences have organized -  on the margins of the 6th Global Environment Facility Assembly - a discussion about the eco-industrial park initiative in Viet Nam.

“The transformation of industrial zones into eco-industrial parks introduced by UNIDO in Vietnam, has added social and environment benefits to the economic profit,” said Tran Duy Dong, Director General of the Ministry of Planning and Investment. Eco-industrial parks combine different approaches, including the application of cleaner technologies in individual firms, the exchange of waste materials, industrial and urban symbiosis, infrastructure and environmental planning, and management of the industrial zone.

High-level representatives from the public and private sectors discussed the current state of development of eco-industrial parks in Viet Nam and the way forward. “The eco-industrial park concept crosses over to resource efficiency, circular economy and sustainable cities,” said Marcel Reymond, SECO Head of Cooperation at the Swiss Embassy in Viet Nam. “Collective facilities are not limited to common effluent treatment plants, but can include high-performance collective energy plants or inter-firm steam and compressed air networks that would be unaffordable for a single company.”

At the global level, UNIDO has been working on developing eco-industrial parks, predominantly under the Swiss-funded global Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production programme. With the support of the GEF, UNIDO has been implementing a project on eco-industrial parks in Can Tho, Da Nang and Ninh Binh, which will be completed in 2019.
