UNEP - Regional Office for Asia Pacific - Phasing Out Incandescent Lamps in Viet Nam

This UNEP-Global Environment Facility project phases out incandescent lamps production in Viet Nam and promotes high quality energy saving lamps in the country. The phase-out of incandescent lamps will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the lighting sector and accelerate commercialization and sustainable market transformation of energy efficient lighting technologies in Viet Nam. The project is executed with the Viet Nam Institute of Strategy and Policy on Natural Resources and Environment under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. Activities are coordinated with the UNEP Division of Technology, Industry and Economics “Global Market Transformation for Efficient Lighting” project.
