Following the trend of building "sustainable" urban areas in many countries such as Singapore, UK, China... Vietnam will have a pioneer urban area built according to the criteria of smart urban areas associated with the commitment to cut reduce emissions.
Mr. Julian Wyatt, CEO of Masterise Property Management welcomed the British Consulate at the signing ceremony between Masterise Homes and two British partners
According to United Nations estimates, 55% of the world's population currently live in urban areas and that number is expected to increase to 68% by 2050.
This leads to the natural habitat shrinking, biodiversity decline, water and air pollution, etc. Therefore, instead of clearly distinguishing between urban areas and biodiversity, it is necessary to integrate these factors. factors together and develop together in a sustainable way.
Project orientation towards the goal of “cutting emissions”
The modern city will be an ecosystem and related elements, including basic issues such as providing people with water and clean air, recycling wastewater, and using renewable energy such as: solar power, maximize the green space, public space, water surface space. To solve this problem well, it is necessary to intervene from the design stage.
In 2019, the UK Government announced that new construction must demonstrate a 10% increase in biodiversity, and the zero emissions requirement will be in place by 2023.
A number of cities around the world have also shown a commitment to tackling biodiversity loss, such as Singapore with a comprehensive "Garden Street" strategy.
Singapore plans to expand 300 hectares of park space by 2026, implementing a restoration plan for 100 species of plants and 60 species of animals, each just a 10-minute walk from the park.
In Vietnam, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh made an official statement at the Climate Summit held within the framework of COP26 at the end of November 2021 on efforts to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
Up to now, although there is no common standard for construction works on emission reduction, some real estate developers have quickly oriented projects towards the goal of “cutting emissions”.
New downtown area "reduces emissions"
