Assessing the importance of raising awareness about EU CBAM, Dr. Ha Huy Tuan - Former Deputy Chairman of the National Financial Supervisory Committee, who is also Head of the Economics Department at Chu Van An University, said: "EU CBAM will be implemented from early October this year, however, many businesses, especially manufacturing companies, have not fully understood the carbon border adjustment mechanism (EU CBAM) yet as this concept is still quite new in the Vietnamese market. Failure to understand EU CBAM contents could lead to risks such as exceeding allowed carbon emissions limits, resulting in higher fees."

In reality, businesses rarely pay attention to laws and regulations and do not regularly update new documents. Therefore, they are prone to legal risks that can lead to unnecessary consequences. At this seminar, Mr. Huynh Thanh Trung - Director and co-founder of LEANWARES Joint Stock Company, who is also a member of the Vietnam Industry Support Alliance (VISA), recommended businesses: "Units need to proactively research and continuously update Vietnamese laws and regulations related to the carbon neutral roadmap by 2030. This will help business leaders develop their own appropriate and accurate carbon neutral roadmap for their company, minimizing risks to the maximum extent."

From that, businesses identify practical action plans to establish a carbon neutral roadmap for the company, orienting towards the goal of sustainable development in the future.
