The severe impact of climate change has driven various countries to work at having low-carbon economies. In response to the trend of global net zero carbon emissions, the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT) in cooperation with the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and the Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association (TEEMA), held an online business symposium on August 24. Experts and scholars shared the latest information on carbon emissions and introduced resources provided by the government. The event attracted more than 520 people.
Representatives from the Industrial Technology Research Institute, Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research, KPMG Taiwan and TUV Rheinland also gave lectures on global carbon reduction trends, possible corporate response measures, carbon footprint evaluation and verification, and government resources. Delta Electronic shared their experience in sustainable operations and journey towards carbon neutrality. Participants had a lively discussion with the speakers on corporate policy, green bonds and carbon rights.
The BOFT will actively support Taiwanese manufacturers to obtain international carbon footprint verification. For more event information, please visit Green Trade Information Network (https://www.greentrade.org.tw)
