422地球日重申減碳行動 LCI在台倡議十年經驗談|LCI members invite Taiwan businesses to join fight against climate change on Earth Day

【看CP學英文】近幾年來,越來越多人認同氣候變遷問題可能成為21是世紀最大的挑戰。 

More and more people agree that climate change might become one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century.  

在台灣正面臨嚴重缺水的情況下,今年的世界地球日更是提醒了大家現在是降低碳排放和吸引更多人和企業聯手對抗氣候變遷的時候。 

Amid Taiwan’s current water shortage, this year’s Earth Day serves as another reminder that it is time to lower carbon emissions and entice more people and businesses in the fight against climate change. 

歐洲在臺商務協會 (ECCT) 底下的「低碳倡議行動」(LCI)  會員們了解這些挑戰 

The members of the Low Carbon Initiative (LCI, 低碳倡議行動under the European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan (ECCT, 歐洲在臺商務協會understand those challenges.  

在過去的10年中,他們努力幫助台灣政府和企業採用最佳的方法和政策降低碳排放 

They have strived to help Taiwan’s government and companies to adopt the best practices and policies on reducing carbon emissions over the past 10 years. 

根據歐洲在臺商務協會執行長何飛逸所述,LCI一直以來都皆透過一系列的旗艦活動在台永續再生能源,吸引更多投資和合作機會 

According to ECCT Chief Executive Officer Freddie Höglund (何飛逸), the LCI has advocated for “sustainability and renewable energy” in Taiwan through numerous flagship events, which have helped attract more investment and collaboration opportunities. 

「這些具體的成果在地球日這天顯得更加有意義」何飛逸說,指出LCI如今已從小小的10個會員變成今日70會員的倡議行動。 

“These [concrete results] are even more meaningful as we celebrate Earth Day, here today,” Höglund said, adding that the initiative has slowly grown from just 10 members to 70 members this year. 

何飛逸指出,在政府於2017年所發佈的「五加二」產業政策下,這些會員對綠色能源、綠色金融、綠色交通、智慧城市、智慧製造和循環經濟等主題分享他們的專業觀點。 

The members have shared their expertise in “green energy, green financing, green mobility, smart cities, smart manufacturing, and circular economy,” in light of the government’s 2017 “5+2 policy,” he added. 

隨著台灣企業努力朝向更加環保的方向邁進何飛逸相信他們現在獲得了一個絕佳的機會,不被侷限地從現在的轉變中學習並由此跳升到前線 

As Taiwanese companies aim to be more eco-friendly, Höglund believes they now “have a great opportunity to learn what is happening and thereby leapfrog into the front line and not be limited.” 

「我們在這邊誠摯的歡迎任何對加入我們組織感興趣的夥伴, 一起督促台灣政策做出顯著改變以為未來世代做準備 

“[LCI] warmly welcome anybody who’s interested to join our organization to take part in these best practices, to help make significant policy changes here in Taiwan for future generations to come.
