HCM CITY (VNS) — Metro Cash and Carry Vietnam's Hiep Phu outlet has won the second prize in the ASEAN awards for best energy management practices by buildings and industries in the small- and medium-building category.

The wholesaler has installed the country's first solar lighting system, which helps it save VND300 million (US$14,000) per year and cut down 220 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

It also uses other technologies like food preservation and air-conditioning systems that are environmentally friendly.

"The technology helps us save energy, creating value for customers and reducing the negative impacts on the environment," Philippe Bacac, the company's Viet Nam managing director, said. — VNS
