SBVN - A Program to Promote Sustainable Buildings in Vietnam

About the program

Sustainable Building Vietnam - SBVN

Sustainable Building Vietnam (SBVN) is a program jointly organized by SBVN Social Organization, the Institute of Sustainable Energy Settlement Research (ISSER), and EDEEC – a leading technical consultant in green and energy-efficient construction in Vietnam. SBVN was established to promote sustainable construction in Vietnam and contribute to achieving the Net Zero Carbon goal by 2050.

SBVN utilizes detailed technical calculation to achieve energy-efficiency in construction without increasing investment costs. The program assists investors in managing three key factors, including optimizing the cost of thermal and energy systems, reducing energy consumption during usage, and improving the thermal comfort of tenants. This is the first step, which lays a foundation for environmentally-friendly projects that effectively reduce CO2 emissions while maximizing investment efficiency.


Developing the economy in tandem with reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Arrow down
Reduce initial construction costs.

Up to 40% of investment costs in thermal and energy components can be reduced. Each invested dollar is carefully allocated and optimized among the various construction components.

Arrow down
Reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

During operation, these projects can decrease energy costs by over 35% and simultaneously reduce greenhouse gas emissions into the environment.

Arrow up
Increase living comfort for tenants

Temperature, humidity, air quality, lighting comfort, and anti-glare are controlled and maintained for each hour throughout the year.


The Program Team

In Vietnam, construction projects have been responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption. With the goal of achieving Net Zero Carbon by 2050, it is increasingly imperative to prioritize the optimization of building energy efficiency.

Vietnam has a significant opportunity to achieve energy efficiency in the construction industry without compromising economic benefits. The incorporation of advanced technology, such as building energy simulation, into the design process can help achieve this goal. This technology has been extensively tested and widely adopted in developed countries worldwide.

SBVN is seeking to work collaboratively with partners to introduce modern design tools and methods that can help develop energy-efficient buildings at an optimal investment cost, tailored for the Vietnamese market.
