Illegal wildlife trade is a major conservation problem in Vietnam. As a mitigating strategy, PanNature organized 19 field media investigation trips across 23 provinces in the country, as well as one trip across the Vietnam-Laos border, accompanied by more than 60 journalists. Journalists were able to observe tragedies with wildlife species firsthand. This effort generated more than 110 newspaper articles and stories, raising awareness of the issue among the public.
Along with the development, material and spiritual life has been dramatically improved, but economic growth has drawbacks: ecological imbalance, climate change, pollution in urban areas, and damaging untreated waste. Economic achievements, social sustainability, and environmental and ecological balance can measure humankind’s general evolution and a country’s prosperity.
Sustainable development involves many social, economic, and human issues. After the “net-zero” commitment by 2050 by the Vietnamese government at COP-26 and new-generation free trade agreements, sustainable development has gotten more attention.
To promote sustainable business models and celebrate pioneering mindsets, Forbes Vietnam will organize Sustainability Leaders’ Summit under the theme Towards a Greener World. This forum will bring together experts and leaders from leading companies to discuss the most critical topics, such as carbon emissions reduction, waste treatment, fight against climate change while sustaining growth and prosperity.
Sustainability Leaders’ Summit is organized to provide:
- The fragile world we live in: Negative and irreversible impacts of climate change to Vietnam if we do not joint efforts and take timely drastic actions.
- Reducing carbon footprints: Featuring representatives of leading companies and experts to discuss solutions, options and business practices to reduce carbon emissions into the environment.
- From linear to circular economy: The concept of circular economy comes from a closed production cycle, reused wastes as raw materials for production, thereby minimizing negative impacts on the environment.
- Real-life networking: Real stories will be shared by representatives of leading businesses in implementing and transforming to sustainable business models.
