This past weekend in Ho Chi Minh City, British Consul-General Ian Gibbons attended the launch event of AstraZeneca Vietnam Co., Ltd. and partnership announcement.
Among its first post-launch activities, AstraZeneca and the UK government will donate 5 solar energy systems to medical centres in Vietnam in 2020-2021.
Speaking at the event, Consul General Gibbons said:
“We are delighted to partner with AstraZeneca Vietnam in their “Green Energy for Health” programme to help local health facilities save energy costs while protecting the environment, and ultimately afford local patients better access to healthcare. Health system strengthening and tackling climate change are long-term priorities for the UK government.”
This partnership contributes to the activities to promote sustainable development that the UK government is prioritising, ahead of #COP26 that the UK will co-host next year. It is also part of AstraZeneca’s “Ambition Zero Carbon” global programme, with a commitment to becoming carbon negative across its entire value chain by 2030.
