broad concept, covering financial investment from both public and private sectors in projects relating to ecofriendly products, environmental damage mitigation and closely linked to sustainable development Green finance in banking sector or green banking is any form of banking that its core operations contribute towards the betterment of the environment This research has not mentioned to green finance in banking sector as a whole, but has only focused on the aspect of law and policy framework of green finance in Vietnamese banking sector Because of the crucial role of the law and policy framework on green banking development, as long as the law and policy framework is incomplete, it is very difficult for commercial banks to operate towards sustainable development The thesis has studied on the stage of law and policy framework for green finance practices in Vietnamese banking sector, its practical impact on the economy in general and application in BIDV as a case study After assessing limitations, some recommendations are given to improve the law and policy framework and promote green banking practices in Vietnam v CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION 1.1 Introduction Green finance is a proponent that combines money and business with environmentally friendly behavior (Hasen et al, 2017, p.1) Contrary to traditional financial activities, green economy emphasizes environmental benefits and provides greater attention to the environmental protection industry (Wang and Zhi, 2016, p.311) Green finance is to increase level of financial flows (from banking, microcredit, insurance and investment) from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors to sustainable development priorities A key part of this is to better manage E&S risks, take up opportunities that bring both a decent rate of return and environmental benefit and deliver greater accountability According to UN Environment Programme, green finance could be promoted through changes in countries’ regulatory frameworks, harmonizing public financial incentives, increases in green financing from different sectors, alignment of public sector financing decisionmaking with the environmental dimension of the Sustainable Development Goals, increases in investment in clean and green technologies, financing for sustainable natural resource-based green economics and climate smart blue economy, increase use of green bonds, and so on Green banking plays an important role in green finance Through banking industry is always considered as environment-friendly but at present the substantial use of energy (lighting, air conditioning, computing), small space, unplanned building, ignoring in-house greenness considerably increased the carbon footprint of banks Green banking avoids usage of paper as much as possible and relies on online/electronic transactions for processing so that we can get green credit cards and green mortgages According to Chen et al (2018, p.571), banking is the key sector that can play an intermediary role between economic development and environmental protection Considering internal operations, banks not affect the environment severely through emission and pollution, but their external impact on the environment through their customers’ activities is substantial As the providers of finance, banks can be strict and impose restriction to the business initiators to adopt environmentfriendly projects and socially responsible investment to ensure the sustainable environmental condition Moreover, banks can provide loan at a lower rate and other incentives to industries for adopting green technologies which will have a lasting positive effect on the global environment According to Tran Thi Thanh Tu and Nguyen Thi Phuong Dung (2017), the result of a survey that was undertaken in June 2012 by State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) of 54 commercial banks, it was found that for 91% of them, there exists no clear policy at the banking level on the green growth, whereas 35% not gain knowledge about the definitions of environment and social issues In particular, 89% admitted that the SBV’s regulations still lack the management of social environment in financial industry Generally, among Vietnamese banks there is a lack of experience of new technologies, which causes them to get into trouble with new energy credit such as the bias about risk appraise on green projects In Vietnam, there is currently no bank which is genuinely considered as green bank, however, there exist several green products for green investments in Vietnamese commercial banks (Tran Thi Thanh Tu & Nguyen Thi Phuong Dung, 2017, p.11) One of the reasons is the limitation of law and policy framework Current law and policy on green finance includes National Green Growth Strategy, Vietnam Sustainable Development Strategy in the period of 2011-2020; Clean Technology Use Strategy; National Action Plan on Green Growth in the period of 2014-2020; Action Plan of the Banking Sector to implement the National Action Plan On Green Growth towards 2020 These laws and policies are not enough to guide specific rules and responsibilities for banks to implement green banking practices The law and policy framework need to supplement clear and specific regulations and guidelines for banks especially about E&S risk when giving a loan Therefore, the research on the law and policy framework on green finance in Vietnamese banking sector and giving some recommendation is necessary and significant control and a responsible banking culture that demonstrates ambition and accountability by setting public targets for addressing their negative impacts and scaling up their positive impacts to contribute to national and international sustainable development and climate targets To deliver on its commitments under these Principles, the bank must: (1) Assign clear roles and responsibilities at board level and across all functional areas for meeting the bank’s strategic objectives regarding sustainability Set up effective management systems and allocate adequate resources Strengthen the Board's responsibilities relating to risk management Define the specific tasks of the Board and its committees, senior management and supervisory bodies Improve key elements of the corporate governance framework, such as risk culture, risk appetite, or regarding the ability of banks to take risks Strengthen the internal control mechanisms of banks (2) Establish effective policies, management systems, including controls risk, compliance and third-party assurance procedures to ensure that sustainability objectives and targets are integrated into all decision making processes across the bank It requires a daily business culture and practice in which all employees understand their role in delivering the bank’s purpose, and integrate sustainability in their work Educate and train employees to develop appropriate awareness and expertise in particular on sustainability issues pertaining to their respective area of work (3) Actively communicate top-level buy-in and integrate performance with regards to the bank’s sustainability targets and responsible banking leadership into performance assessments, remuneration schemes and promotion decisions Target Setting Identify impact and set targets Focusing on the most material issues and setting targets drives most impact and changes (1) Identify the most significant positive and negative social, economic and environmental impact Set SMART targets that address the most significant negative impacts resulting from your bank’s products, services and activities and 79 that scale up your bank’s most significant positive impacts and contribution to society’s goals The ambition level of these targets needs to be in line with the international and national targets of the Paris Climate Agreement and the SDGs (2) Signatory banks are generally expected to set and publish their targets within 12 months of becoming a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Banking The exception are those banks who self-assess as being in the early stages of integrating sustainability, i.e “starter banks” These banks as a result may take up to 24 months to set and publish their targets The targets have to meet or exceed the ambition and timeframes expressed in Sustainable Development Goal and relevant national and regional frameworks Principle – Transparency and Accountability The Principles are intended to enable investors, policy makers and regulators, clients and civil society to compare banks and hold them accountable for their environmental, social and economic impacts The bank commits to periodically review the individual and collective implementation of these Principles and be transparent about and accountable for positive and negative impacts and contribution to society’s goals (1) Banks are required to within the first 12-18 months of becoming a signatory and every year thereafter provide information on their implementation of the Principles for Responsible Banking in their public reporting, in particular their annual report and publication on their website Banks that are already reporting on sustainability, especially under common frameworks, will find that most of the information required is already part of their existing public statements (2) At the same time, undergo a separate annual review process in which requirements will vary depending on the level of the bank's self-declaration Consistent, unexplained failure to so will result in being removed from the signatory list 5.3 State management agencies on natural resources and environment In addition to the central role of banks in green credits as analyzed above, the 80 role of State authorities in promoting policies and laws on green credit must be mentioned, as well as its role in maintaining the seriousness and integrity when implementing green credits projects and strategies Accordingly, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment must study and promulgate specific guidelines and specific, clear sets of standards, minimizing sub-licenses in licensing projects using natural resources such as land, water, ground, water surface and other environmental related projects Environmental agencies must facilitate and support green projects to be appraised, quickly approved and coordinated with banks in green credit appraisal Absolutely no lobbying policy or accepting bribe to adopt projects that under standards or lack of environmental safety and push the difficulties to banks while banks not have qualified personnel in specialized areas for accurate assessment of environmental impact issues Expanding Green Project Catalogue and prioritizing support for green projects through close coordination with Credit Funds, SMEs Credit Guarantee Funds, Environmental Protection Funds, etc 5.4 Associations, professional associations and civil society organizations In order to promote green credit while the policy and legal mechanism are still completing, the associations need to be proactive in recognizing the importance of green credit, offer training and temporary financial support packages, as well as connect member enterprises to banks In fact, successful green credit models will be the clearest evidence for policy makers when Vietnamese legislators still have many other concerns in the market economy with the government regulation context Law always follows life, so if professional associations can create successful green credit models, it may quickly convince policy makers to soon approve incentive mechanisms to simplify procedures for approval of green projects, fees/charges/taxes on green credit will also be more competitive and economical, accordingly 5.5 Incentives to banks In odder to encourage commercial banks to grant green credit, (by in-depth interview) Mr Do Van Hai – Head of Trade Finance, BIDV SMEs Department 81 recommends that the SBV should consider (i) reducing compulsory reserve ratios or offering incentives to the banks with high proportion of green credit outstanding; (ii) adjusting the conversion rate of green credit outstanding to lower than other credit when calculating risky assets; (iii) increasing the allowed bad debt ratio of banks promoting green credit to encourage commercial banks to provide loans for green projects and plans of customers, etc Another recommendation from Mr Hai is that the Government should seek and give strategies to develop financing sources to support green projects in addition to bank credit such as green growth funding from international financial institutions (WB, ADB ), establishing green credit fund of the State to support interest rates and guarantee for green projects, mobilizing capital to support green projects through issuing green bonds… In Project owners’ perspective, (by in-depth interview) Mr Hugo Virag and Mr Han The Phong recommend that the MOF should establish preferential tax policies for green investment projects 5.6 Dissemination of guidelines and data about green finance/green credit As environment protection is responsibility of every people, in order for not only banks but also the whole community to get updated of law and policy and outcomes in relation to green growth, the SBV should promptly and frequently post related documents and data, especially those under its own power, on its website That is also a green way for SBV to implement its task in green banking development In addition, SBV should organize more Conferences and training courses for working levels of banks to update new law and policy, in addition to Conferences with banks’ top management as present 82 Chapter 6: CONCLUSION Green finance and green banking is still a relative new issue for the nations all over the world including Vietnam Countries in the G20 group are the leading countries in building law and policy framework on green finance and have had initial success in implementing green finance activities such as green bond, green credit, etc Learning from the experience of the advanced countries as well as from the demands of practice, Vietnam has been developing legal and policy framework on green finance However, law and policy framework in Vietnam is only at the initial stage Current law and policy on green finance includes National Green Growth Strategy, Vietnam Sustainable Development Strategy in the period of 20112020; Clean Technology Use Strategy; National Action Plan On Green Growth in the period of 2014-2020; Action Plan of the Banking Sector to implement the National Action Plan On Green Growth toward 2020, Scheme on Green Bank Development in Vietnam These laws and policies are more of orientation and still lack of specific rules and regulations for banks to implement green banking practices, hence, the State Bank of Vietnam is expected to promptly fill that gap Commercial banks with an important role in the financial system should be a leader in economy in implementing activities towards green finance This not only contributes to enhancing the reputation and image of the bank in society but also making important contributions to sustainable economic development However, Vietnamese commercial banks are not aware of their social responsibility through green banking activities by themselves In this context, the State Bank of Vietnam should coordinate with the Vietnam Banks Association to develop Principles for banking membership These Principles will define and affirm the banks’ role and responsibilities in shaping a sustainable future These Principles should be built on the basis of reference to the initiatives of the United Nations Environment Program - Financial Initiative (UNEP FI) to orient the bank's operations and banks should commit and monitor the implementation of the Principles In addition, a number of 83 recommendations for the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment as well as the Vietnam Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (VINASME), other industry associations and civil society organizations are also proposed to closely coordinate in raising awareness and social responsibility of the community towards sustainable development 84 REFERENCES Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) (2012), “Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision” Cam An (2015), “Ngân hàng xanh - tín dụng xanh: Chặng đường gian
