The Center for Green Economy

Guiding principles

According to The Global Risks Report 2019 published by World Economic Forum, the top three risks have much to do with extreme climate. Sustainable development has become an urgent goal pursued by the all sectors of the society. Thus, the governments and non-governmental organizations all over the world have proposed various models of material, financial and information flows for production and consumption, expecting to achieve the goals of a sound environment and economy through economic transition. Among them, green economy is the concept of economic development focusing on the solutions to the deteriorating environment and resource limitations on the earth. It requires the innovations of technology, business models and lifestyles toward a sustainable society.

All the sectors of the society in Taiwan recognize the significance of green economy as well. The government has explicitly listed the development of green economy as an important national policy. At the same, non-governmental organizations have also actively converted the concept of green economy into a practical and feasible economic model. Therefore, we believe, in order to efficiently utilize the material, financial and information flows in green economy, it is necessary to integrate all strengths from various parties through the practices of innovative production, consumption, education, legislations, R&D and management.
