Benefits of green building development in the construction sector

In recent years, the development of environmentally friendly green buildings has initially brought efficiency and is becoming an inevitable trend in the field of construction. built in Vietnam.

Benefits of developing green buildings

Mr. Nguyen Tran Nam, Chairman of the Vietnam Real Estate Association, said that Vietnam is forecast to suffer many challenges from climate change since the 2000s. We have had many positive activities. Typically, the Prime Minister has promulgated the National Strategy on Climate Change and the National Strategy on Green Growth and many other practical action programs. Notably, “The action plan of the construction industry on green growth to 2020, orientation to 2030”.

In fact, over the years, the development of green buildings has brought many great benefits to the economy, society and the environment. With the real estate market alone, the world has also proven that the application of green building development will bring a lot of added value and create sustainable development for the construction industry and the real estate market. . Therefore, investors and home buyers need to have the right awareness to promote green building in construction.

According to Mr. Le Trung Thanh, Director of the Institute of Building Materials (Ministry of Construction), the development of green buildings has spread to many countries around the world and become a inevitable trend in the field of construction.

Currently, the world has more than 100,000 green buildings with more than 1 billion square meters evaluated at different levels, showing that investors are well aware of the benefits benefits of green building in national and global development strategies.

In Vietnam, green building is forecasted to have a strong development in the coming years. More and more investors and home buyers are aiming for “green” criteria in the development of construction projects and housing projects. Those are the criteria in the use of environmentally friendly building materials, economical and efficient use of energy throughout the operation of the project.

In fact, in recent years, construction businesses have had many changes in their vision and development orientation, aiming to provide construction projects to the market. There are many green elements and energy efficiency. UNDP demonstration projects on the application of technical solutions to reduce energy consumption in new and renovated buildings show that potential energy savings can be achieved from 25% to 67%/work process, with incremental costs from 0% to 3% of the total investment/work and a maximum payback period of 5 years.

When it comes to green buildings, the use of environmentally friendly building materials is one of the most important criteria to replace building materials Traditional practices are adversely affecting the environment, causing many consequences such as loss of agricultural land, increased emissions, causing the greenhouse effect…

Statistics show that every one billion standard fired bricks will consume about 1.5 million m3 the land is exploited at a depth of 2 m, equivalent to 75 hectares of agricultural land lost. Thus, if in 2020, our country’s demand for fired bricks is about 42 billion bricks, it is expected to consume 50 – 70 million m33 land, equivalent to about 3,000 hectares of agricultural land, consumes about 6 billion tons of burning coal and releases about 23 billion tons of CO2 into the environment 2.

According to the analysis of experts in the field of building materials, promoting the development of environmentally friendly materials effectively will contribute to the use of about 15-20 million tons of ash, slag from thermoelectricity and blast furnace slag per year to produce unburnt building materials. Thereby, saving 1,000 hectares of agricultural land and hundreds of hectares of land containing waste, ash, and slag, proceeding to completely abolish the production facilities of clay bricks fired by manual kilns.

Replication of green building models in construction

According to the International Finance Corporation (IFC), by the third quarter of 2020, the total number of certified green buildings in Vietnam has only stopped at children. 155 works, quite modest compared to other countries in Southeast Asia and the world.

Over the years, Capital House has been one of the pioneer investors in developing green buildings, using environmentally friendly materials, thereby saving money. save resources, save energy, and at the same time bring new winds to promote green building development in Vietnam.

Shared at the Launching Workshop on green building development program organized by Vietnam Real Estate Association recently, the representative of green building development management of the company. This group shared: At Capital House projects, thanks to the application of technology, the investor has helped residents save electricity bills, water bills up to 27.5% and 28% on construction materials. build.

According to the representative of this group, the current problem is that most developers and even homebuyers have a vague perception of green buildings. . Therefore, it is necessary to further promote information and communication about the benefits and effectiveness of green buildings in the field of construction to contribute to changing and raising awareness and promoting green building development in Vietnam. Vietnam is getting stronger and stronger.

This investor representative also suggested that the State should encourage and create more favorable and specific conditions for organizations and individuals to research and develop and applying science and technology, investing in the production of environmentally friendly and energy-saving materials. At the same time, there are preferential policies and investment support for investors who build and develop green buildings, with a high rate of using environmentally friendly materials.
