Energy Sector Aims to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 17-26% by 2030
Vietnam’s energy sector has outlined its plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 17-26% by 2030 and approximately 90% by 2050, compared to the normal development scenario. These targets have been established in the recently approved National Energy Master Plan for the period 2021-2030, with a vision extending to 2050. The plan’s overarching objective is to ensure national energy security and defense, meet the requirements of socio-economic development, industrialization, and modernization, improve the lives of the people, and protect the environment.
The plan also aims to successfully implement energy transition, aligning with the goal of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Additionally, the scheme sets targets for energy savings of about 8-10% by 2030 and approximately 15-20% by 2050, compared to the normal development scenario. These energy savings goals are crucial in promoting sustainable and efficient energy usage.
By setting these ambitious targets, Vietnam’s energy sector demonstrates its commitment to addressing climate change and promoting environmental sustainability. The plan’s implementation will contribute to the country’s efforts in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning towards a greener and more sustainable energy future.
