The Earth Hour campaign in Vietnam is an annual activity. It is hosted by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT), with the support of many businesses, especially the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN), which serves as the sponsor of the campaign.

The campaign is one of the actions of the Vietnamese Government and people, demonstrating their commitment to joining hands with the world in the fight against climate change.

In Vietnam, activities responding to the Earth Hour are coordinated by the MoIT with the support of the EVN. The EVN has been the main sponsor of the Earth Hour movement in the country for 10 consecutive years since Vietnam joined the campaign in 2009.
