Vietnam Green Building Council (VGBC)


The Vietnam Green Building Council (VGBC), established in 2007, was the first non-profit organisation in Vietnam to promote green and sustainable buildings. The VGBC works to raise awareness about green building principles, provide education and training programs, develop green building standards, and certify green buildings in Vietnam. Its LOTUS green building rating tool, first released in 2010, covers a wide variety of building typologies for both new and existing buildings. The VGBC also carries out its commitment to raise awareness in the market through a wide variety of trainings and exam-based accreditation of LOTUS consultants. The council also maintains a publicly accessible database of green construction products and service providers.

Green Summer Design Studio 2023

After more than a week of taking place, the Green Summer Design Workshop 2023 Event has officially closed with many emotions, echoes and great experiences for you to attend. During the event days, architecture students and young architects applied their knowledge to propose new and creative ideas for a small architectural work (semi-open space), towards energy efficiency and low carbon emissions.
Vietnam Green Building Council VGBC is honored to accompany and share professional knowledge about green building to all event attendees. We hope that there will be more events like this so that the young Vietnamese generation in general and young architects and engineers in particular have more environments and opportunities to learn and develop.
