Promote Sustainable Program of Energy Consumption Through Energy Management System (PROSPECT EnMS), a project implemented by Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) and TUV NORD, conducted onsite visit to the first batch of pilot Vietnamese SMEs last September 14-15 in Hanoi and 19-22 in Ho Chi Minh City.
The Hanoi visit was participated in by five (5) Board of Management (BOM) representatives of Song Cong Diesel Limited Company (DISOCO), while the visit in Ho Chi Minh was attended by 8 BOM representatives of Van Don Plastic, and 4 BOM representatives of Saigon Paper Joint Stock Company.
Through the visit, the Project Team sought to hold an initial evaluation on the system management and internal energy audit for pilot companies regarding the ISO 50001 standard (Energy Management System). The event is considered as the kick-off activity for the Technical Assistance phase of the project.
PROSPECT-EnMS is a Public-Private Partnership project jointly implemented by DEG, TUV NORD Vietnam and ASSIST. Scheduled to run from March 2012 to August 2013, it hopes to promote environmental sustainability amid Vietnam’s rapid socio-economic growth.
For two days, ASSIST Partnership and Network Management Director Kamesh Ganeson assessed the companies’ documented procedures, while local consultant ENERTEAM audited their internal energy systems. Le Sy Trung of TUV NORD Vietnam and Le Nguyen Hoang Long of ASSIST also helped organize the event. #
