Industry-trade sector aims to reduce greenhouse gas emission by up to 30%

The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) has issued an action plan on climate change adaptation to 2030, with a vision to 2025, with a goal of reducing the sector’s greenhouse gas emission by 25%-30%.

Under the plan, the proportion of renewable energy in the total primary energy supply will reach about 15-20% by 2030 and 25-30% in 2045. Meanwhile, greenhouse gas emission from power generation is projected at about 42 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent by 2050.

Development strategies and masterplans of the industry and trade sector for the period from 2021 to 2030 will be reviewed and supplemented with climate change adaptation solutions. The sector will work out measures to enhance infrastructure and key projects’ capacity to withstand the impacts of natural disasters, flooding and other extreme climatic phenomena.
