The Hanns Seidel Foundation is a political foundation with its headquarters in Munich (Germany). “In the service of democracy, peace and development” – this motto is present in the work and mission of the Hanns Seidel Foundation. This motto applies both to its activities in Germany and abroad. Since 1995, HSF has supported the integration of Vietnam into the global political spectrum and the ASEAN-Community. Since the establishment of a representative office in 2011, HSF has focused its work in Vietnam on social and environmental policies for sustainable development.
 
Among the long-standing partners of HSF is the Institute of Strategy and Policies on Natural Resources and Environment (ISPONRE), the think-tank under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE) of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. As the key policy advisory agency to the Ministry, ISPONRE has been assigned to be responsible for several topics in the Guiding Decree to the Law on Environmental Protection 2020 including the regulations on developing the environmental industry.
 
The environmental industry is an integral part of the Vietnam’s sectoral economic system and will be crucial in the process of making production patterns and service delivery in Vietnam more sustainable.

To support ISPONRE in drafting the detailed regulation on environmental industry in the decree to the Law on Environmental Protection 2020, HSF and ISPONRE have agreed to jointly identify TWO national experts.
