EuroCham has several members that offer services and products to improve living standards and the quality of the environment, while being committed to conducting their business in a socially and environmentally responsible way.

EuroCham Greenbook showcases their expertise and these principles, presenting tangible evidence of the work EuroCham and its members are carrying out in Vietnam,” he said.

Beyond this publication, EuroCham also launched the interactive Greenbook website, the first portal of its kind in Vietnam, a platform for companies operating in the green business to promote their services and achievements in Vietnam. The Greenbook portal is also a centralised source of information when it comes to news and events on the subject.
