Delta at COP21
Each year, the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) convenes so that governmental officials, scientists and members from civil society can discuss the international agenda on climate action.
Since 2007, Delta Electronics Foundation has been participating at the COPs every year. We bring back the latest climate discussion and in-depth analysis of all kinds in the context of climate change to raise public awareness here in Taiwan.
Delta Electronics Foundation co-hosted the first official side event at COP20 in Lima, Peru, where we shared the successful rebuilding of Namasia Elementary School. This school had attained the most stringent green building standards in the world, and it serves as a disaster shelter during the typhoon seasons. Moreover, it has become the first Net Zero Energy Campus in Taiwan as it incorporates renewable energy, passive design, and energy management.
In 2015, Delta plans to share more good practices of Delta’s 21 green buildings. In recent years, Delta has not only introduced a variety of progressive innovations and strategies on building energy saving, but has also led Taiwan's green building standards. Delta sees building energy efficiency as an important solution to reduce carbon reduction, and remains optimistic that this topic be put into national climate agendas. After all, we all want to live in a sustainable society.
