The committee is a disciplinary organization responsible for assisting the Government and the Prime Minister in handling issues and proposing orientations and measures relevant to green growth.

It will also assist the Prime Minister in coordinating the implementation of the National Green Growth Strategy for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050.

In October last year, Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh signed Decision No. 1658/QD-TTg approving the National Green Growth Strategy for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050.

The overall goal of the strategy is to contribute to accelerating the process of restructuring the economy in association with growth model transformation in order to achieve economic prosperity, environmental sustainability, and social equality.

It also aims to facilitate transition to a green and carbon neutral economy and contribute to reducing global warming.

The Government will strive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions per GDP by at least 15 percent by 2030 and at least 30 percent by 2050 compared to 2014.

The Government expects to raise the rate of renewable energy in total primary energy supply to 15-20 percent and the forest coverage rate to 42 percent over the next decade.

By 2030, at least 95 percent of urban solid waste will be collected and treated in accordance with regulations.
