Decision No. 876/QD-TTg on approving the Action Program for Transition to Green Energy and Mitigation of Carbon Dioxide and Methane Emissions from Transportation

legislation type Executive
Action Plan
Passed in 2022
The overall objective of this Action Program is to develop a green transportation system towards the goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

The roadmap for transition to green energy contains specific targets and concerns roadways; railways; inland waterways; shipping; aviation; and urban traffic.

In order to fulfil these tasks, the Action Program sets out solutions:
  • Formulate and complete mechanisms, policies and planning;
  • Develop programs and policies for the transition to vehicles running on electricity and green energy;
  • Develop green transport infrastructures;
  • Improve the energy efficiency and GHG emissions reduction;
  • Strengthen international cooperation, science and technology, develop human resources and communication.

The Action Program also establishes institutional mandates.
