(PLO)- Đã có khoảng 50% doanh nghiệp dệt may Việt Nam rời khỏi cuộc chơi do không xanh hóa chuỗi sản xuất và cung ứng.

Số liệu thống kê từ Hiệp hội Dệt may Việt Nam (VITAS) cho thấy tổng kim ngạch xuất khẩu hàng dệt may trong ba tháng đầu năm nay chỉ đạt hơn 8,7 tỉ USD, giảm gần 19% so với cùng kỳ năm ngoái. Hiện ngành dệt may Việt Nam đang đối mặt với nhiều khó khăn khi lượng đơn hàng sụt giảm 30%-60% so với cùng kỳ.

Điều đáng chú ý là trong khi xuất khẩu dệt may Việt Nam sụt giảm mạnh khiến hàng loạt công ty lao đao thì dệt may một số nước vẫn “sống khỏe”.

During a ceremony held in Washington to commemorate the Lunar New Year in 2011, then–Vietnamese Ambassador to the United States Le Cong Phung surprised the audience by announcing that the two countries would raise their ties to the level of “strategic partnership.” Phrases describing partnerships can be nebulous, of course. But from what we know about Vietnamese diplomacy, Hanoi’s definition of strategic partnership is not just boilerplate, but signifies concrete, mutual, long-term strategic interests.

Vietnamese officials, however, never followed up on Phung’s newsworthy announcement. Instead, Washington and Hanoi announced a comprehensive partnership in 2013—a relationship that implies a less-serious geopolitical alignment for Vietnam. The United States has been left wondering why.

Emissions from Oil and Gas Operations in Net Zero Transitions


A World Energy Outlook Special Report on the Oil and Gas Industry and COP28

Today, oil and gas operations account for around 15% of total energy-related emissions globally, the equivalent of 5.1 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. In the International Energy Agency’s Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario, the emissions intensity of these activities falls by 50% by the end of the decade. Combined with the reductions in oil and gas consumption in this scenario, this results in a 60% reduction in emissions from oil and gas operations to 2030.

Fortunately, oil and gas producers have a clear opportunity to address the problem of emissions from their activities through a series of ready-to-implement and costeffective measures. These include tackling methane emissions, eliminating all non-emergency flaring, electrifying upstream facilities with low-emissions electricity, equipping oil and gas processes with carbon capture, utilisation and storage technologies, and expanding the use of hydrogen from low-emissions electrolysis in refineries.

Upfront investments totalling USD 600 billion would be required to halve the emissions intensity of oil and gas operations globally by 2030. This is only a fraction of the record windfall income that oil and gas producers accrued in 2022 – a year of soaring energy prices amid a global energy crisis. This report aims to inform discussions on these issues in the run-up to the COP28 Climate Change Conference in Dubai in November and is part of a broader World Energy Outlook special report to be released later in 2023 focusing on the role of the oil and gas industry in net zero transitions.
