HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — Deutsches Haus on HCM City's Le Duan Street will become the most energy-efficient office building in Viet Nam when it is completed in 2017, German company Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh Stadt Ltd., the building owner, has said in a press release.

The 25-storey building will consist of around 30,000sq.m of office space and is expected to be completed in the third quarter.

Improving the energy efficiency of office buildings can result in energy savings of more than 50 percent for the nation.

HCM City plans to reduce its carbon emissions by nearly 300 metric tonnes by 2016 and plans to become a green city, but office buildings remain far from being in any way energy-efficient.—VNS
