The ECCT's Low Carbon Initiative (LCI) was established in June 2012 to showcases 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 six main categories. The six categories include: Circular Economy, Green Energy, Green Financing, Green Mobility, Smart Cities and Smart Manufacturing.
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 six categories: Green Energy, Green Financing, 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 three working groups: Green Finance, Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and Corporate PPA working group, Eco-mobility & Eco-logistics working group, Sustainable Supply Chain working group under the existing 6 categories.
The LCI is overseen by the LCI Steering Committee, 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.
