The objective of the Energy Efficiency for Industrial Enterprises (VEEIE) for Vietnam is to improve energy efficiency in Vietnam's industrial sector. The project has 2 components:
(1) Energy Efficiency Investment Lending component consists of an Energy Efficiency lending program. An Operational Manual (OM) was developed, which outlines selection criteria for subborrowers and subprojects, appraisal procedures, roles and responsibilities of the Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs) and the government, the PFIs’ internal institutional arrangement for project implementation, technical evaluation, environmental and social assessment, procurement, and financial management frameworks that are consistent with the Bank and the Vietnamese government rules and procedures. During project implementation, the PFIs will be responsible for identifying, appraising and financing subprojects that meet the criteria in the OM and will bear all associated risks.

The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing email@example.com.
