The ECCT's Low Carbon Initiative (LCI) was established in June 2012 to showcase the best European low carbon solutions and practices across a broad range of industries and sectors. The purpose is to raise awareness about sustainable development and to promote the adoption of low carbon solutions in order to help Taiwan to reduce its carbon emissions.
To do this the LCI arranges workshops, seminars and conferences together with government agencies and local industry where members can showcase their expertise, best practices and experience. The events are designed to attract participation by corporations, government and non-governmental organisations and on occasion, also the general public. Membership of the LCI is open to all ECCT members.
LCI events are organised into seven main categories. The seven categories include: Green Energy, Green Financing, Energy Efficiency, Green Mobility, Smart Cities, Smart Manufacturing, and Circular Economy.
Raise awareness of low carbon solutions and work toward a low carbon society
The LCI in 2017 analyzed Taiwan’s new government’s 5+2 policy and the LCI members’ core competencies, set up seven categories: Green Energy, Green Financing, Energy Efficiency, Green Mobility, Smart Cities, Smart Manufacturing, Circular Economy. Based on Taiwan’s policy movement from 2020 to 2024, the LCI in 2020 has created the four working groups: Green Finance, Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and Corporate PPA working group, Energy Saving and Green Building working group, Eco-mobility & Eco-logistics working group, Sustainable Supply Chain working group, and Industry-Academia Cooperation under the existing 7 categories.
The LCI is overseen by the LCI Chair & Three Vice Chairs, which ensures that all LCI activities are subject to the ECCT's ethical and procedural standards. In edition to the ECCT CEO and the LCI Director, four LCI members also serve on the LCI steering committee. These four members are elected to serve a one-year term at the LCI annual meeting, which is normally held in December.
