HEINEKEN Vietnam takes bolder actions in water conservation effort

Must read

HEINEKEN Vietnam, in partnership with WWF-Vietnam and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, continues to roll out the joint effort for water conservation in the watershed of the Red, Dong Nai and Tien rivers.

Following the same activities in the Red and Dong Nai river basins in 2022 and early 2023, HEINEKEN Vietnam and partners are providing strategic consultation and design of the hydrological system, with the aim to restore water resources in the Dong Thap Muoi Ecotourism and Conservation Area in the watershed of the Tien River.

This is part of a four-year water conservation partnership funded by HEINEKEN Vietnam, with a total commitment of VND30 billion over four years. The program is set to strengthen water resources management in three critical river basins of Vietnam and conserve three billion liters of water annually until 2025. The program is also aimed at raising awareness for water resources among the local communities.

Dong Thap Muoi Ecotourism and Conservation Area, on the wetlands along the downstream basin of the Tien River, boasts a diverse water ecosystem with some unique flora and fauna exclusive to the Dong Thap Muoi region. Playing a pivotal role in maintaining and safeguarding the wetland ecosystem, the Ecotourism and Conservation Area significantly contributes to water resources balancing in the Tien River basin. With the pressing demands for arable land and the impact of climate change, however, the habitats and water supply function in this area are facing increasing challenges. HEINEKEN Vietnam and partners target to improve the ecosystem, protect habitats for birds, and replenish water.

With further progress, HEINEKEN Vietnam aims to reach the goal of becoming 100% water balanced by 2025 – whereby the company will return to the environment the amount of water going into its products and vaporizing during production. Speaking from Dong Thap Muoi Ecotourism and Conservation Area, Mr Le Quang Kiet, Corporate Affairs Director, HEINEKEN Vietnam, says, “We are proud to be working in partnership with WWF-Vietnam, Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and local departments to implement water conservation initiatives in three critical river basins of Vietnam. Through a holistic approach, we aim to contribute to improving the environment and become 100% water balanced by 2025.”

On the increasing pressure on Vietnam’s water ecosystems, Mr. Le Quang Kiet also highlights the importance of the collaboration between HEINEKEN Vietnam and different organizations and individuals as the company is looking for comprehensive solutions to conserve water and realize its sustainability vision of “Brewing A Better Vietnam”.
