WORKSHOP ESG – FROM AWARENESS TO ACTION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
The Workshop program “ESG – From awareness to action for sustainable development” was organized by Newtecons Construction Investment Joint Stock Company on the morning of December 9, 2023, with the participation of the Board of Directors of member companies in Ecosystem, leading experts in Environment – Society – Governance (ESG), and 60 Newtecons managers.
During the session, Operations Director, Mr. Nguyen Truong Duy, emphasized the value and efficiency of integrating ESG principles into corporate operations. At Newtecons, the ESG index is a crucial component that portrays the whole business picture of the company as it strives to connect with the world in support of sustainable development goals, as ESG becomes a critical and strategic global trend in production and commercial activities.
Newtecons has certain basic foundations with the decision to follow the ESG path. As a result, Newtecons is presently ranked among the top ten most prominent contractors in Vietnam and is recognized by both domestic and international organizations; our culture emphasizes on people in order to establish a team of highly specialized experts. Furthermore, Newtecons’ commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly business has been demonstrated by the completion of numerous projects that have received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification, including the BOHO Factory, Newtecons Tower, BM Windows Factory, Barrett Brewery, Viet Vuong factory, and so on. Among them, the BOHO Factory stands out as one of 5,000 factories worldwide that fulfill LEED Gold requirements.
Speaking at the event, the company’s general director, Mr. Vo Thanh Liem, said: “For Newtecons, environmental sustainability is a commitment rather than merely a trend. ESG, in my opinion, is the cornerstone of sustainable corporate development and a duty owed by all members of the public. We currently have the facilities and capacity to accomplish this. We have demonstrated our leadership and commitment in the past, and now it is time for us to jointly reinforce the “green brand” of Newtecons.”
During the event, the Roadmap for implementing the ESG Strategy at Newtecons was given by ESG Committee representatives. During the session, members and prominent industry professionals looked at and excitedly addressed several issues. As a result, members were inspired, and motivated and saw a clear overview of ESG issues, ready to work together to implement Newtecons’ ESG commitments.
Intending to lead the industry in green and sustainable growth after 2026, Newtecons defines ESG as a long-term roadmap that will be separated into three phases from 2023 to after 2026: Foundation, Readiness and planning, and Implementation.
