Nowadays in Vietnam, environmental issues are of major concern at all levels: from the national level to the local level: right across business communities, organizations, as well as every member of society.

In terms of integration into the world economy, Vietnam has advanced quite a bit. But even though its economy has developed in a robust manner, the country faces serious pollution and environmental degradation. As the economy grows and the standard of life improves, the demand for a clean environment will come more and more to the forefront.

The environment has to be protected in a sustainable manner, and at the same time, the quality of life of the Vietnamese people cannot be ignored. Striking a balance in this regard is the primary mission of Saigon Water and Environment Co., Ltd. (SAWAEN).

Our company is staffed with professionals who are well trained at home and abroad. They are highly qualified and experienced in the field of environmental consulting and planning. They design and construct water treatment and waste disposal systems. They undertake novel waste transformation strategies, and they supply materials and equipment to partners at home and abroad.

We are committed to satisfying the needs of a broad range of customers, and hopefully one of those customers might be you. We sincerely thank you and look forward to working with you.
