TRAINING PROGRAMS ON GHG EMISSIONS INVENTORY AND MITIGATION FOR BUSINESSES IN THE FOOD AND BEVERAGE
Updated: Apr 2
The food and beverage industry are a significant contributor to the economy of Vietnam, but it also produces a significant amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Businesses in the sector are addressing this issue by moving toward sustainability and minimizing their carbon footprint.
A recent training organized by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Department of Climate Change under Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Vietnam under the project’s framework “Support for Planning and Implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions in Vietnam” (SPI-NDC) has highlighted the importance of GHG emissions inventory and mitigation for businesses in the food and beverage sector. Companies such as Heineken, Greenfeed, and Coca Cola are leading the way in implementing sustainable initiatives that focus on renewable energy, energy efficiency improvement, and circular economy practices.
One innovative solution offered by Carbon Solutions International is the use of biochar as an organic enhancer to sequester carbon. This solution helps to reduce the consumption of chemical fertilizers, reducing GHG emissions from the production and processing of food. Biochar is a part of Terra Preta, which is an ancient soil management technique used by Amazonian farmers to create nutrient-rich soils, with the side effect of carbon sequestration.
Get in touch with the experts at Carbon Solutions International for more details on their biochar solutions if you're seeking to lessen your carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.
Join the effort to make Vietnam's food and beverage industry net-zero emission and more sustainable.
