Saigon Newport Corporation Focuses on Digital Transformation and Sustainability
The trend towards clean energy development, emission reduction, and environmental protection is essential to achieve a harmonious and environmentally friendly economy, ensuring well-being for all segments of society. In Vietnam, the government is also determined to implement actions to realize the commitment to achieving net-zero emissions at COP26, as well as approving the 'National Green Growth Strategy for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050,' and the 'Circular Economy Development Plan in Vietnam' with the common goal of transitioning to a green economy, carbon neutrality, and contributing to limiting global temperature rise. The logistics sector in general, and the port industry in particular, have also developed collective action strategies to green the industry. These initiatives include programs for green energy transition and green port development. Among these strategies, digital transformation and automation are driving forces in the green and sustainable development process for the logistics and port industry and the entire economy. It is expected that after 2030, the 'green port' criteria in port planning, construction investment, and operation in Vietnam will become mandatory.
