Announcement of Environmental Policy
As the trend towards environmental responsibility matures, Taipower as a public utility must constantly strive to balance the necessity of maintaining power quality and security with the public demand for eco-friendliness and sustainability. Finding a functional balance between these competing priorities is an essential element of the company's mandate to "provide stable power for the diversified development of society in a friendly environment and at a reasonable cost" and its corporate vision of "becoming a world-class enterprise in the power utility industry that is both superior and trustworthy." As such, the Company plans its long-term development path by considering major environmental issues and development trends in the energy industry, as well as the international outlook for a transition to carbon neutrality by 2050 and the timeline of achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. To provide transparency in these efforts, Taipower maintains its Chariman-signed, Board-approved environmental policies for public review.
Announcement of Taipower's White Paper on the Environment
In order to implement the concept of sustainability for Taipower's businesses, the Department of Environmental Protection, in accordance with its mission of being eco-friendly, proceeded to formulate high-level policy for the Company in 2018. This effort included environmental policy, the development of eco-friendly strategies, objectives and action plans, and the implementation of the "Environmental Protection Policy Establishment Promotion and Analysis Program." The goal of this work is to incorporate the spirit of the Company's existing policy into an "Environment White Paper" and to actually implement the content of the white paper in order to fulfill the organization's commitments to the environment. Internally, the white paper provides a green action guideline for future business units at Taipower when implementing environmental protection. It can also be used externally as a blueprint of the Company's vision forstrengthening communication and demonstrating Taipower's commitment to being eco-friendly in the future.
In April 2019, Taipower officially released its "Environmental White Paper" to disclose the Company's six strategic aspects for environmental protection. Correspondingly, the paper developed 12 strategic dimensions as the foundation for Taipower's subsequent efforts to promote environmental sustainability. Through ambitious goals and forward-looking action plans, Taipower will integrate its business divisions to achieve engagement (increasing internal and external engagement), creation (creating a smart and ecological future), and reduction (carbon reduction, pollution reduction, and emission reduction). The benefits of these efforts are the creation of eco-friendly power generating facilities through numerous methods, and fully shaped green, eco-friendly, sustainable, and inclusive enterprise systems for power generation, transmission, distribution and sales.
