The selection process for the 4th National Enterprise Environmental Protection Awards, the highest environmental honor for domestic enterprises, has started. Applications will be accepted from 15 April to 16 May. Enterprises that are willing to participate should prepare and upload their registration materials to the "National Enterprises Environmental Protection Awards" website within the registration period.
Last year (2021) President Tsai declared that transitioning to net zero by 2050 is a goal of Taiwan, and instructed government agencies to plan and promote it in a forward-looking and pragmatic way, hoping that enterprises and the government would work together to achieve the goal of net zero by 2050. Participating in the competition for the 4th National Enterprise Environmental Protection Awards will not only allow enterprises to demonstrate their performances in environmental protection and carbon reduction promotion, but will also allow experts and scholars from different professional fields to examine their efforts and give them innovative suggestions. This will help enterprises improve their environmental protection and carbon reduction performances, enhance their international competitiveness, advance with the nation toward the goal of net zero by 2050, and create more green business opportunities.
Applicants for the competition for the 4th National Enterprise Environmental Protection Awards are divided into two groups: manufacturers and non-manufacturers. The categories consist of excellent, gold, silver, bronze, and nomination awards. The selection will be based on actions taken by an enterprise with respect to source reduction and waste reduction during production, corporate social responsibility, promotion of green supply chains, green procurement, energy and resource saving, pollution prevention and control, and participation in environment-related activities. Implementation of environmental policy is also included as a criterion to earn bonus points.
