ASSIST holds pilot training on Green Building for IFC

11 01 2012

Nineteen architects convened in Ho Chi Minh City’s Energy Conservation Center (ECC) last December 17 to 20, 2011 for the Green Building pilot training of Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) under the International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) initiative Energy Efficiency Training Product and Trainer Development.

The event sought to develop the learning materials that can be used by Vietnam-based builders in designing Green structures. With content focused on green buildings, it is hoped that the material will spread environmental consciousness among policymakers, academe, and members of the infrastructure and construction industries.

For this endeavor, ASSIST serves as consultant and project management.

A member of the World Bank Group, IFC is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in developing countries. Its Green Building training initiative is aligned with one of its strategic priorities, “Addressing climate change and ensuring environmental and social sustainability.”#
