The Ministry of Construction has announced a national action plan on green growth covering the 2020-2030 period and focusing on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in construction materials production, construction works, urban areas and technical infrastructure for new urban areas, thus contributing to implementing the Paris Agreement.
The plan has four main tasks including mitigating GHG emissions, adapting to climate change, preparing resources, and establishing a transparent public system of measurement, reporting and evaluation.
The Ministry will focus on building a technology transfer monitoring system, strengthening the construction industry’s capacity, developing guidelines for the implementation of the Paris Agreement and mobilizing international resources to support the construction sector’s climate change response. It has appointed the Institute of Building Materials and the International Certification Joint Stock Company to conduct testing and certifying the quality of products and construction materials such as cement, additives for cement and concrete.
