International Conference "Green Business: From Commitment To Motivation"

The International Francophone Institute (IFI), Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU), International Organization of the Francophonie (OIF), Francophone University Agency (AUF), and International Institute for Francophone Studies (2IF) - Jean Moulin Lyon 3 University would jointly organize the international conference "Green Business: From Commitment To Motivation", on October 17th 2024 in Hanoi. This conference is a part of the interdisciplinary scientific conference series DAAS (Diderot Advanced Academic Seminars), which is initialized by International Francophone Institute and sponsored by Vietnam National University, Hanoi.


Currently, around 140 countries, equivalent to almost 90% of total global emissions, including major emitters like the United States, China and India, have committed to reducing emissions to net zero. Each country sets its own timetable for achieving this goal, mainly by 2050, with a few exceptions in 2035 and 2070 at the latest.

“Net Zero by 2050” – this commitment by Vietnam at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in 2021 marked a historical milestone creating a premise for a green and sustainable economy. To achieve this goal, there is a need for a comprehensive transformation, in which businesses play a very important role as their production and business activities are the determining factor of greenhouse gas emissions. For businesses, their participation in the “Net Zero” process faces many challenges but also brings new opportunities.

The current green shift trend has promoted the birth of a new model: Green business. Like all businesses, the goal of a green business is to make money. But “green” means that we achieve this objective while sustainably exploiting the opportunities offered by nature without harming the environment.

Green business can be defined from two points of view: one concerns the result in the form of green products (goods and services), the other concerns the process (or production) of an economic activity. Green businesses often focus on using renewable energy, reducing waste, optimizing production to reduce emissions and energy consumption, and promoting products and services that have positive impacts on the environment and the community. Additionally, green companies often initiate sustainable work culture, green supply chain according to eco-friendly standards and social responsibility in their business operations.

Green business development is not only just a trend but also a commitment of many economies. Participation in the “Net Zero” process is both an opportunity and a challenge for companies to comply with the trend of the green economy, especially to affirm the capacity of companies to integrate new technologies into production, to respond green production requirements, political and financial mechanisms for green transformation.

The international conference entitled "Green businesses: from commitment to motivation" in the International Forum Franconomics-2024 gathering scholars, researchers, implementation and management units aims to:

  • Clarify the concept of green business, the criteria and evaluation factors;
  • Know the context, opportunities, challenges and issues of developing green businesses in the current context;
