The Prime Minister has approved 18 industrial parks in Vinh Phuc province, covering over 5,200 ha, of which 11 have been established with a total area of ​​over 2,100 ha. In addition to investing in infrastructure, boosting business operations, strengthening wastewater and waste treatment solutions, tenants in Vinh Phuc province-based industrial parks have paid much attention to building green living spaces, protecting the environment and improving worker health.

Clearly defining the importance of building green, clean and beautiful landscapes in local industrial parks, the Vinh Phuc Industrial Parks Authority has planted trees along internal roads in existing industrial parks and added tree planting plans to the construction of blueprint ones. Each tenant must devote at least 10% of the area for greenery, water surface and roads. Investors and tenants also know the importance of making a “green lung” in industrial parks and they thus take many practical actions to build green spaces in their locations.

As an industrial park developer that aims for green and sustainable development, Sumitomo Corporation of Japan, the investor of Thang Long Vinh Phuc Industrial Park, has focused on growing trees, lawns and ornamental plants in order to create a “green lung” to reduce the feeling of heaviness and frustration in the factory environment. The corporation spares 20% of the area for greenery, water surface and roads. The industrial park is currently planting a variety of shade trees to create landscapes and reduce environmental pollution. Besides, along internal roads, the firm has built three canals with a total length of 3.6 km, not only for rainwater and flooding drainage but also for water for plants. The planting and care of trees in an industrial environment has now become the demand and responsibility of each tenant. In the coming time, the corporation will further improve the landscape, reduce pollution and improve the beauty and attractiveness for the industrial park.

With a well-invested, consistent investment and a green space for air conditioning, Thang Long Vinh Phuc Industrial Park is expected to become a model industrial park with a friendly working environment that creates a breakthrough in investment attraction.

Responding to the green living movement, wholly South Korea-invested Cammsys Vietnam Co., Ltd in Ba Thien Industrial Park - the manufacturer and processor of electronic components – has grown many trees and lawns in its estate to cool the air in hot days, create a fresh space, a clean working environment and improve worker health. In addition, the company has also built a soccer field and a rest area for workers. The construction of “green” living environment in industrial parks has helped minimize greenhouse effects, shape a green, clean and beautiful landscape environment, boost the sensation of workers after stressful working hours, and limit respiratory diseases. In the coming time, it is hoped that industrial parks not only in Vinh Phuc but also in other localities nationwide will pay attention to planting trees and building a green, clean and beautiful environment in order to successfully achieve the goal of sustainable green development.
