The Green One UN House in Viet Nam has two key aims – to help the UN in Viet Nam ‘Deliver as One’ and ‘Deliver Green’.
In addition to Delivering as One, the Green One UN House is a major step towards answering the UN Secretary-General’s call to ‘Deliver Green’, as well as becoming a role model for sustainable green buildings in Viet Nam. The Green One UN House is also the first building in Vietnam to be awarded a provision Gold Lotus Rating from the Viet Nam Green Building Council.
Photovoltaic panels on the roof harness solar energy and generate 10 percent of the building’s annual electricity requirements. Overcoming many strong opponents, SolarBK was honored by ECOBA – the main contractor to be selected to provide the solar system.
