News: Taiwan Makes Significant Progress on Carbon Reduction

According to the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) under the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the total carbon emissions from Taiwan’s manufacturing sector fell by more than 11 million metric tons between 2006 and 2015, Taiwan Today has reported.

IDB indicated that the emissions generated by Taiwan’s manufacturing industries per dollar of output are currently 45 percent lower than a decade ago, showing the positive results of cooperation between public and private sectors on promoting environmentally friendly production processes.

It took a combined investment of NT$42.1 billion (US$1.3 billion) to achieve the accumulative results for the past decade, IDB added. In the future, the Bureau is planning to further promote the adoption of technologies such as smart energy management systems.
