About Us

GREENVIET is one of the first consultants in Vietnam to focus on Sustainable Construction and Green Building. Ever since our foundation, GREENVIET has been driven by a clear vision of contributing to a greener Vietnam.

Before setting up GREENVIET, our founders accumulated their experience through working on many green building projects since 2008 when Vietnam had its first projects designed and built to LEED standards. Now at GREENVIET, with the slogan of “Building Sustainable Practices,” we continue our professional work with LEED, LOTUS and Green Mark projects, and so far we have completed over 120 projects in Vietnam and across Southeast Asia. We take over more than 50% of Vietnam's green building market, which has fortified our leading position in the country.

With a headquarter office in Ho Chi Minh city and a branch office in Hanoi, our company currently has over 30 employees coming from diverse backgrounds, from Construction, Environmental, M&E, Energy to Architecture. Our in-house simulations and commissionings expertise gives us a deep analysis on Green Building. This diversified knowledge enables GREENVIET to cover all aspects of the integrated design in a project as required in Green Building rating tools (LEED, LOTUS, Green Mark, EDGE, WELL, FITWEL). Other than Green Building Certificate Consultancy, GREENVIET also provides these following services:

In everything we do, we strive to help our clients achieve a comprehensive and effective sustainability program in design, construction, operation and maintenance of the building’s entire life-cycle!

 

 

WHAT IS GREEN BUILDING?

Green Building has become a revolution in the construction industry, aligning with the global Sunstainable Development Goals. World Green Building Council (WGBC) defines Green Building as a Building that can minimize negative impacts and can provide positive impacts on our climate and natural environment during its design, construction and/or operation stages.

Nowadays, there are several Green Building standards with different evaluation criteria in the world, but all of them are based on 5 main elements: energy, sustainable sites, materials and resources, water and indoor air quality.

As the criteria are built to evaluate a construction project from design stage to completion and operation, green buildings have brought about great and diverse benefits. These benefits can be divided into 3 main categories: Environment, Economy, and Society.

Green Building solutions such as using solar energy, natural lighting, and means of public transportation, will increase energy efficiency and reduce harmful emissions, thereby contributing to environmental protection. Specifically:

Green Building rating systems have categories aimed at evaluating a project from design to finish and completion stage, therefore Green Buildings bring various significant benefits. These benefits can be divided into 3 types: Environment, Economy, and Society.

Green Building solutions such as using solar energy, natural daylight and public transportation utilities will increase energy efficiency and reduce harmful emissions, thereby contributing to environmental protection. Specifically:

Cost savings in the operation process can be deemed the main economic advantage that a Green Building can bring, alongside other benefits such as enhancing building value and increasing productivity. Specifically:

Environmental pollution, global warming and climate change are the topics of great concern for the community. Finding a safe and comfortable living and working space is an essential need. On the other hand, buoyant real estate market and the tendency of increasing interest in health and healthy lifestyles are the motivators for investors to search for a new direction: constructing projects according to Green Building standards!

Besides the environmental and economic benefits for investors and users, green buildings also bring great benefits for the public such as:

In Vietnam, there are 6 Green Building rating systems currently in use:

CSR, short for Corporate Social Responsibility, was first built before World War II, and was widely expanded in the 60s of the last century. Accordingly, enterprises in the process of establishment and development should not only focus on creating profits but also implement long-term and sustainable dvelopment policies and strategies in order to not affect the future generations. Therefore, each and every business should ensure the harmony of these three elements in their business strategy: Profit, People, and Planet (3P model of CSR). These three elements also correspond to the three benefits that Green Building offers: Economy, Society, and Environment.
