Ho Chi Minh City is planning to reduce its carbon emissions by nearly 300 metric tons and save energy to become a green city by the end of 2016.
The country’s busiest city aims to cut its energy use by nearly 500 million kilowatt-hours of power and six million tons of fuel products during the period, according to a statement from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources. 
Businesses in the city have been required to improve their facilities and upgrade to new technologies for efficient operation.
According to the ministry, the city government since 2002 has supported nearly 600 businesses with energy-saving measures such as using more efficient street lights, and switching from gas-fueled vehicles to those running on electricity and liquified gas.
