- The Taipei City Government has committed to reduce its Community emissions by 50% by 2050 compared to 2005 emission level.
Since July 2003, the Taipei Construction and Management
Office has stipulated that any public building construction
budgeted over US$ 1.67 million must enclose a Green Building
Candidate Certification issued and overseen by the Ministry
of the Interior when soliciting building permits. After
receiving completion approval, the Green Building Labeling
Committee will certify the green point-rating according to 10
principal attributes that lead to final approval.
In order to support energy savings and carbon reduction
awareness and habits, the project calls for 150 campaign
kiosks in neighborhoods in twelve districts, designed to promote
six activities: (1) energy and resources conservation; (2)
low-carbon transportation promotion; (3) publicizing projects
related to community grants as well as energy conservation
assessment counseling; (4) Inviting the public to sign the
Energy Savings and Carbon Reduction Declaration; (5) encouraging
people to eat locally grown and seasonal food,

2.Aimed at voluntary energy conservation enterprises with city electricity contract capacity over 300 kW, we provided counseling service for electricity, lighting, air conditioning and heat system.
1.advocacy of water-saving measures through household, community, and city agencies & schools, 2012 Statistics revealed the daily household water consumption in city water supply area was 220 liters, declined 16.35% compared with 263 liters in 2007. Total household water consumption in 2011 was 313 million tons, compared with 370 million tons in 2007. Water consumption reduced 57 million tons, carbon reduction of 5,540 tons.
2. Removing the useless water supply pipeline in the city.
As the effects of global warming become more severe, the City Government issued the “Renewable Energy Action Plan in Taipei City” in 2008 to promote the renewable energy policies and achieve the goal of using renewable energy as it has committed in the Urban Environmental Accords. Aside from its advocacies on education, energy conservation, carbon reduction and the application of renewable energy, it also distributes the budget for the affiliated institutions and schools, provides subsidies to the private industries and businesses that set up a solar and photovoltaic power system, employs professional institutions to make research plans on renewable energy development mechanisms, and passes and carries out the policies on the utilization of renewable energy. The expected goal of this action is achieved.
2. Until 2014, there are 25 agencies and 39 schools set up solar PV power generation system in 77 sites, total capacity of 3,120 kw include private setting.
1. Promoting the Project of energy conservation measures implemented in city agencies & schools and setting up reduction target.
2. Enforcing to replace official use of government vehicles beyond 2008 with hybrid car, and to transform government vehicles beyond 2003 into hybrid, if they match the type or model.
Gradually expand public transport network and adjust bus route to match up MRT system. Suspended four MRT routes and shorten two MRT routes in 2014 to integrate Song-Shan line operation.
