On Earth Day, 22 April this year, President Tsai announced that Taiwan is plotting a path to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, both via an ongoing energy transformation, and by developing systematic strategies to reduce emissions in sectors such as manufacturing, transportation, residential construction, and agriculture. However, unlike the European Union, Taiwan has yet to announce a roadmap of targets and actions that will be needed for Taiwan to reach net zero by 2050.
Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan (LY) is already in the process of drafting legislation that would put Taiwan on path towards net zero carbon emissions. In February this year the LY’s UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Advisory Council held a joint press conference, where they declared a determination to facilitate net zero carbon emissions for Taiwan by 2050. As part of efforts to achieve this, more than ten legislators across party lines called for an amendment of the “Climate Change Action Act”. The council aims to function as a platform for social cooperation and collaboration between the private and public sectors, social groups and citizens and to act as a bridge between central and local governments on sustainable issues.
In his role as chairman of the LY’s SDGs Advisory Council, LY Vice President Tsai Chi-chang has been instrumental in driving further meaningful action to meet SDGs and promote low carbon sustainable development in Taiwan. In this regard he has actively sought cooperation with the ECCT's Low Carbon Initiative (LCI) by participating in joint events including the 2021 SDGs forum and the 2021 Sustainable City Forum, both facilitated by the ECCT LCI and its partners.
By the LCI's invitation, our distinguished guest speakers will outline how the LY can drive and accelerate Taiwan’s progress towards meeting SDGs and achieving net zero carbon emissions.
