Carbon reduction is a global trend.

With the increasing industrialization worldwide and the rise in carbon emissions, there has been progressively more severe damage to the atmosphere and ecosystems. As a result, reducing carbon emissions has become a crucial pathway to maintaining the ecological balance of the Earth and mitigating climate change.

I hope that everyone can recognize the importance of the environment and make contributions to
the best of their abilities.

The world's greenhouse gas emissions ranking


Policy schedule

2020年 Bureau of Energy

For contracts with Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) having a capacity of 800 kW or above, an annual energy conservation plan with a 1% energy-saving and carbon reduction target must be submitted.

2024年 Environmental Protection Administration


It is anticipated that a carbon tax mechanism will be developed in advance, following the European Union's carbon tariff imposition, and the scope of regulation will be expanded to include the wholesale and retail sectors.

2023年 Environmental Protection Administration


Besides the initial designated industries (steel and cement) that are required to undergo annual carbon audits, a second batch of audit targets has been added, including electronic components, chemical material manufacturing, textile industry, and metal and non-metal manufacturing, among others.

2027年  Financial Supervisory Commission


Listed companies are required to complete greenhouse gas inventories in stage.

Why is energy consumption monitoring important? Should I pay the carbon taxes?

What is a carbon tax?  What is a carbon tariff?

The European Union (EU) was one of the first regions in the world to introduce a carbon emissions trading system, as early as 2005, which imposed carbon fees on EU-based companies emitting carbon dioxide. However, foreign companies that exported goods or services to the EU were not subject to these carbon fees, leading to unfair competition.

To address this issue, the EU introduced the world's first 'Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism' (CBAM), commonly referred to as the 'European Carbon Tariff.' CBAM levies carbon fees on goods or services imported into the EU from abroad. As the EU represents one of the world's largest markets for goods, the impact of the EU's CBAM mechanism is substantial, particularly affecting exporters from Taiwan to the EU.

According to the EU's CBAM (Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism) carbon tax plan, it is set to be implemented on October 1, 2023, with the formal commencement of carbon tax collection scheduled for 2027. Importers are required to report the carbon emissions associated with their relevant products and, simultaneously, purchase 'CBAM certificates' from the European Union to cover the costs linked to the carbon emissions of imported products. Initially, CBAM will primarily target seven major categories, including steel, cement, aluminum, fertilizer, and electricity, with plans to expand its scope to include hydrogen and downstream steel-related products such as screws and bolts
