VNCPC and the project “Conservation of Environmental Resources in Vietnam”

CONSERV, or Conservation of Environmental Resources in Vietnam is a PPP Capacity Building Project initiated by PUMA for all of its suppliers in Vietnam. It is co-financed by the German Bank DEG-KFW and managed in cooperation with ASSIST , an NGO operating in Asia. CONSERV applies the concept and methodology of UNIDO’s Resource Efficiency and Cleaner Production (RECP) to enhance the capability of suppliers toward an efficient use of resources such are energy, water and materials of production as well as addressing the issue of environment protection.

The project aims to equip PUMA suppliers with the necessary knowledge and skills to help them achieve the 25% sustainability targets of PUMA by 2015 as well as help them improve their production efficiency.
