Environmental and social consulting for Vietnam’s first car manufacturer

SMEC teams are delivering Environment and Social Action and Management Plans for the proposed Vinfast Car Manufacturing and E-Scooter Production plant.

Located on Cat Hai Island, 40 km from Hai Phong City, the Vinfast Car Manufacturing and E-Scooter Production project will be the first car manufacturer in Vietnam, serving local as well as international market demands.

The challenge

This project is being partially funded by international financial institutions, and robust environmental and social management are key criteria to obtaining funding. Many organisations in the private sector are unfamiliar with how to identify and meet these requirements.

The solution

Partnering with a local consultant, SMEC’s specialists are assisting our client to fully understand its obligations as project owner, and to deliver best practice social and environmental management plans that align to international standards. This includes site audit visits, local government liaison, and collaboration with multiple stakeholders. Once approved and implemented, these plans will address any risks and gaps in project development and operation, as well as provide more options for affected communities.
