Most of us have come across the term “sustainability,” but how many have taken steps towards it? What does sustainability truly mean, and where should companies eager to adopt sustainable practices begin?
These questions gave rise to the creation of GREEN HORIZON. As a standout segment of the acclaimed Vietnam Innovators Summit series, which was kickstarted by Vietcetera in 2022, GREEN HORIZON’s 2023 edition promises to convene industry trailblazers and thought leaders.
At GREEN HORIZON, participants can expect a treasure trove of insights on both technology and sustainability, shared by society’s leading figures and experts.
