Strengthening Environmental Laws & Agencies

Many AmCham members are embracing sustainable practices across their businesses and are leading the way in Vietnam through investments, innovation and strategic decisions toward a more environmentally sustainable future. AmCham continues to promote better understanding of the linkages between business operations and society and we continue to work on raising awareness on the need for sustainable outcomes. We all want a greener Vietnam and that calls for best practices, best knowledge and best responsibility by everybody.

AmCham members are invited to participate in a roundtable discussion on April 3 with Brenda Doroski, Senior Advisor for the Asia Pacific Program at the US Environmental Protection Agency, to discuss how American companies can help solve problems in Vietnam within the context of strengthening environmental laws and agencies.

About the guest speaker:

After graduating Virginia Tech with a degree in Biology, Brenda Doroski became a Peace Corps Volunteer and later worked at the Peace Corps headquarters. She has worked at the US Environmental Protection Agency EPA for the past 18 years and currently serves as Senior Advisor for the Asia Pacific Program at EPA. EPA is collaborating with Vietnam’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to strengthen environmental laws and institutions in Vietnam by training environmental officials on reviewing environmental impact assessments, conducting environmental inspections, developing permitting standards, enforcing regulations, and providing environmental information to the public. These efforts aim to increase compliance with environmental laws, improved air and water quality, better waste management; increased public participation and access to environmental information, and improved chemical management by industry.
