ASEIC held Eco-Innovation Capacity Building Seminar For Vietnamese SMEs
- To Raise Awareness on Eco-Innovation and Enhance Firmer Cooperation with SMEDEC2 by signing MOUs

ASEM SMEs Eco-Innovation Centre (Chairman, Myung Ki SUNG) held an ASEM Eco-Innovation Capacity Building Seminar for two days from 27th to 28th September at the Lotte Legend Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. This seminar mainly focused on SME’s capacity on how to achieve eco-management innovation, introduc...ed effective energy management at their worksite and shared energy management tools, as ways to vitalize technical cooperation between Vietnam and Republic of Korea.

The main target area of this seminar was eco-efficiency for SMEs based on a preliminary demand survey. ASEIC invited Korea’s distinguished energy audit experts as lecturers to provide methodologies of analyzing and measuring energy consumption at worksites and helped participants establish their own annual energy reduction plans accordingly. Also, the information on emission trading system would be one step further for Vietnamese SMEs as an opportunity to get a glimpse of how international projects operate. The parallel session on practical exercise was also provided to help participants to measure energy by using audit equipment and to increase applicability of energy management through an economic analysis of its measurement result.

More than one hundred representatives from SMEs and government sectors participated in this seminar. The introduction of detailed thematic modules at this seminar was expected to expand the base for eco-innovation. Small and Medium Enterprises Development Support Center 2 (SMEDEC 2) supported this program. In addition, ASEIC and SMEDEC 2 signed MOUs on further mutual support and cooperation during the morning session on 27th September. Through this MOU, two organizations will strengthen its cooperation on mutual support for adoption and dissemination of eco-innovation practices and promotion of eco-efficiency.

ASEIC is an inter-governmental body that raises eco-innovation-related awareness, facilitates relevant technology cooperation and exchanges information that promotes eco-innovative growth primarily for SMEs in the ASEM region. Since its launch in 2011, ASEIC has contributed to helping SMEs to respond climate change by sharing know-how on low-carbon growth and good practices that minimizes environmental effect within the ASEM channel.
