(Re-Advertisement) - Tender Notice - Conduct Water audit & Water Efficiency (WE) practice guidebook compilation

Posted on 17 January 2022

Tender Ref. PR-HAN-FY22/0023
Background

Domestic fabric production and finishing is now considered in great demand for growth in the context of Viet Nam’s goals to boost its larger value added earnings from textile trade in the CPTPP and EVFTA, where the rule of tariffs removal is commonly applied for ‘yarn forward’ or ‘fabric forward’ sourcing internally in those FTAs’ territories. At the same time, weaving and dyeing facilities are confronting scarcer and more expensive resources to reach their full production capacity. Water, energy is taking higher proportion of operational cost, while the cost for effluent of all kinds of wastes (wastewater, solid waste and gas emission) are peaking to comply with environmental regulations. Overexploitation of water, combing with drought and salt intrusion as the consequence of climate change have caused massive degradation in the quantity and quality of water aquifers. To its turn, water stress affects the energy production, as both hydro and thermal power plants heavily depend on water source. This time is more than ever when the business sustainability solutions is placing around the water and energy efficiency, renewable energy, and boosting resources’ circularity.
