Topic: GHG Emission Reduction

In recent years, Vietnam has seen an annual generation of over 15 million tons of solid waste from various sources. Urban areas account for over 80% of this waste, while the remaining portion is attributed to industrial sources. It is important to note that the collection and treatment of waste is only carried out for a small percentage of the total waste generated. In cities, the rates of waste collection and treatment surpass 70%, but in rural areas, those numbers are roughly 20%. The primary sources of emissions include CH4 emissions originating from landfill waste that has been collected, emissions coming from both industrial and household wastewater, N2O emissions arising from domestic wastewater sludge, as well as CO2 and N2O emissions resulting from waste incineration procedures. In general, the waste industry contributes a very small percentage (ranging from 2.5% to 5.3%) to the overall composition of national emissions.

The agricultural and energy sectors exhibit the largest percentage of emissions, followed by industrial processes, waste and land use, land use change, and forestry. However, it is anticipated that there will be an important increase in emissions originating from the energy sector in the near future. This growth will include both the overall quantity of emissions and their relative contribution to the overall emissions framework. Like many other nations, the energy sector is projected to have the highest proportion of emissions within the national economic framework in the years to come. 

This break-out session will focus on “The Science behind Climate Change” and will dive into the scientific basis of climate change, the role of GHG emissions, and their impact on global warming. It will provide clear examples through case studies on how enterprises reduce their GHG emission and the relevance of climate science to businesses.
