On 25 February Denmark’s Ambassador Charlotte Laursen in Vietnam visited Kim Lan Village and awarded two ceramic enterprises for their successful investment in new gas firing kilns, which enable them to both save energy and reduce CO2 emission significantly.
It’s the first time this Energy Saving Award has been presented, and hopefully not the last, writes the Embassy of Denmark, Hanoi.
The Energy Saving Award is an initiative of the Green Investment Facility, which is a Fund to stimulate energy efficiency investments by Vietnamese small and medium enterprises established in 2015 by the Embassy of Denmark in cooperation with the Ministry of Industry & Trade of Vietnam.
The Green Investment Facility (GIF), up and running since February 2015, supports investments in energy efficiency measures in small and medium sized businesses in the ceramics, food preparation and brick production sectors. These are all sectors with great energy efficiency potential.
