Green Drinks Tackles Green Business

March 29, 2010

St. Patrick’s Day may have come and gone, but there’s more emerald-themed nightlife happenings this month with the next installment of Green Drinks, the Ho Chi Minh City branch of the worldwide environmental event series.

Head over to QD Bar & Lounge at 138 Ton That Dam in District 1 tomorrow evening, March 30, to clink glasses and get informed about Green Business, from carbon credits to green manufacturing. The presentations and Q&A session will be lead by Tau Van Ngoc, international consultant for and co-founder of Hanam Carbon, and Melissa Merryweather, the founder of consultancy firm Green Consult-Asia and southern regional coordinator for the Vietnam Green Building Council.

The presenters will address a number of questions. What are the opportunities for green business — the REAL ones? What’s holding Vietnam back? What do we need to do to make green business real and viable?

The RMIT Vietnam Environment Club will also introduce their latest activities and update the crowd on how they can get involved in Earth Day, which celebrates its 40th anniversary on April 22.
