During the event, Central Retail, along with representatives from the National Competition Commission, Directorate General of Markets, and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), engaged in discussions on various topics related to sustainable production and consumption in Vietnam, plastic waste management, and how a modern retailer could help to promote the sustainable behavior to consumers.

We hope that consumers will actively support this concept, contributing to its widespread adoption and impact on sustainable practices and healthier living for everyone.”
The “Green Consumption – Healthy Living Together” exhibition, featuring more than 20 businesses and units from domestic and international markets, takes place at Big C Thang Long from July 21 to 30. The event is expected to attract approximately 25,000 visitors.
