The power industry has promoted domestic industrial and economic development. In addition to supplying energy to Taiwan, Taipower has created a tangible historical architecture and immaterial collection of memories for Taiwan. In line with Taiwan's pursuit of social development and cultural awareness, the Company has integrated cultural preservation and creative thinking into its development-oriented growth model, promoting corporate humanism in business, public welfare, and the building of a cultural corporate image.
The Company actively seeks to promote an appreciation of its responsibilities and its sustainable development philosophy. Through combing the history of Taiwan’s electrical industry development with education, Taipower injects diversity into society and promotes the use of value-added knowledge. The Company established a working group on a Cultural Heritage Preservation, Operation and Maintenance Project to conduct a full inventory of the company’s cultural assets and to help preserve the Company's non- building cultural heritage. The Vice President of Strategy and Administration serves as the convener and the Company uses its Meeting on Important Cultural Heritage Preservation, Operation, and Maintenance Project to promote preservation, research, and communication with society. Taipower adopted the strategies of research-before- education, phased development, and continuous adjustments for its review operations on cultural and historical data in accordance with different themes. The Company inspects, preserves, and displays the resulting cultural and historical data to promote resource sharing and revitalization and to fulfill its corporate social responsibility.
