The store in Hà Nội is one of the 4,500 eco-eficient stores worldwide opened by the Spanish retail giant Inditex. The stores use at least 20 per cent less electricity and 40 per cent less water than conventional stores. By using technologically innovative systems, these stores have reduced energy and water consumption.

The newly opened store also uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to keep track of inventory and restock its clothing racks more quickly.
