Transitioning to carbon neutrality will require a rewiring of the entire economy. From a country perspective, Vietnam has recently made a stronger commitment to tackle climate change in COP26.

The race to Net Zero is both a responsibility and an opportunity for businesses. Businesses making early commitments will enjoy a first mover advantage, positioning themselves favourably with changing consumer attitudes, new technologies and new markets.
