Hanoi (VNA) - The Women's Union of Thuong Tin district in cooperation with the People's Committee of Duy Thai commune and Coca-Cola Beverages Vietnam Limited on February 24 officially launched Asia's second EkoCenter in Hanoi.

The EkoCenter is located at the cultural house of Ha Thai hamlet, Duy Thai commune in Thuong Tin district. It is equipped with a roof covered entirely with solar panels, supplied by Solarkiosk.

The green energy produced by the center's solar panels produce approximately 8kW of electricity per day, enough to power all of the center's activities. This includes the EkoCenter's water treatment system that daily can purify about 6,000 liters of water to serve the needs of 3,000 local people.

On the same day, the Vietnam Environment Administration and Coca-Cola Vietnam signed a partnership agreement on the environment to extend environmental activities already being implemented and further consolidate the partnership between the parties.

The agreement will encourage companies, the community and other organisations to actively participate and pay attention to environmentally sustainable activities.-VNA
