The Center for Green Economy (CGE)
Introduction of The Center for Green Economy
In recent years, due to the environmental degradation and the stagnation of economic development around the world since 2008, governments turned to environmental investments by diffusing environmental technology to create double dividend effects in both environment and economy. These green integration strategies around the world, or so-called "Green New Deal," have a great impact on Taiwan, a trade-oriented economy. Correspondingly, the global market has thus adopted increasingly stringent "green" or "environmental" requirements on international trading. International corporations also set up even higher green procurement standards than the international agreements. In turn, these trends influence Taiwan's exports to a certain extent. Therefore, the green capacity of domestic enterprises in Taiwan should be built up as soon as possible to grasp green business opportunities arising from “Green New Deal” around the world.
At this moment of global economic restructuring, Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research (CIER) establishes the Center for Green Economy (CGE) to continuously conduct research on these policy issues. According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), “Green Economy” is defined as the economy that improves human well-being and social equity while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. The CGE will also make a significant contribution to the economy and environment of Taiwan in addition to traditional independent research in CIER. This Center is engaged in the research related to green policies, green industry, national and global green markets, and a variety of activities including providing professional courses, green business counseling, marketing assistance for the green products and services from Taiwan. In fact, the CGE is a comprehensive unit to promote green economy.
The main research areas of the Center are as follows:
(1) Global green economy and Green New Deal development analysis;
(2) Global green trade trend analysis;
(3) Green industry promotion and development;
(4) Environment and energy policy research;
(5) Regional and international cooperation on green economy;
(6) Green finance research and development;
(7) Courses and activities related to the issues above
