Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) held its first stakeholders forum for the CONSERV (Conservation of Environment Resources in Vietnam) Public Private Partnership (PPP) Project on September 23, 2011, in Ho Chi Minh City.
CONSERV is an initiative co-financed by German donor DEG and implemented by PUMA SE and ASSIST. It seeks to promote resource efficiency and waste management practices among Vietnam’s textile, garment and leather factories. The 17-month project will feature awareness-raising and capacity-building whilst also contributing to sustainable development in the country.
The project will support suppliers in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting vulnerable natural resources and minimizing the effects of waste
and pollution on the local community and environment. #
