PRO Vietnam is a coalition of leading FDI and Vietnamese companies having high prestige from consumer goods, packaging, retail, and import industries (21 members) and especially a common responsibility: make Vietnam Green, Clean, and Beautiful by promoting a circular economic model through more accessible and sustainable packaging collection and recycling process. This is an important pillar in the 3R principle (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). PRO Vietnam was founded in Ho Chi Minh City on June 21, 2019.
As a voluntary initiative, we will work together on unified plan with collection and recycling goals aligned with government objectives in an open and non-competitive spirit.
Leading by example, we will drive positive change by taking voluntary and proactive initiatives as pioneer of the industry.
We will create and maintain an open and inclusive PRO platform for all packaging stakeholders to join and contribute; and we will create a level playing field for all member companies.
We will conduct PRO operations in full respect of Vietnam laws and business ethics
We will create an environment where each member is inspired by the work of PRO Vietnam.
We will set realistic, measurable goals, and we will achieve them, focusing not on what we can get from, but what we can contribute to Vietnam.
To be one of the key contributors to make Vietnam green, clean and beautiful.
While doing business in Vietnam, we will drive the circular packaging economy and make recycling more accessible and sustainable.
Our ambtion is that, by 2030, all packaging material that members put into the market is collected for recycling.
PRO Vietnam will be focused on incentivizing recycling industry to increase collection via the informal and formal sectors, in addition to education and awareness to drive behavior change by promoting the circular economy for packaging.
PRO Vietnam aims to collaborate with the recycling business, driving a circular economy of packaging in Vietnam by 2030. This model will recreate an entire ecosystem of consumer-good packages, from design, manufacture, to collecting after usage, recycling and reuse, giving a second life to packaging waste.
