Logistics is a service industry that consumes energy and generates large emissions. Promoting the development of logistics services in parallel with energy saving, switching to environmentally friendly energy sources, using recyclable materials is a big task for the service industry logistics. At the COP-26 Climate Change Summit (November 2021), the Prime Minister pledged that Vietnam would reach net zero emissions by 2050. This is a very important goal, requires responsibility and strong participation of industries, including logistics.
To convey this message, orient and encourage logistics enterprises to comply with the requirements of energy saving, emission reduction, and clean energy use, the Vietnam Logistics Forum 2022 takes the theme of "Green Logistics".
