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 in 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 Electronics Foundation shares its practices and innovations in Delta's green buildings at the Side Event of COP21. We not only give a keynote speech at the negotiation venue, Germany Pavilion, but share on Sustainable Innovation Forum. Moreover, we throw Delta Green Building Exhibition at Grand Palais (conference footages 1, 2, 3). In recent years, over 20 green building projects built or donated by Delta Electronics and Delta Electronics Foundation introduced several visionary energy-saving innovations and strategies, which set the benchmark for the green building standards in Taiwan. Delta deems energy-saving from buildings an essential mean to carbon reduction and expects states to put it into their respective carbon-reduction agenda to build a more sustainable society.
In 2017, invited by Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) on COP23, the Foundation shares its experiences on the promotion for sustainable city at the Side Event organized by ICLEI. In 2018, the Foundation shares its experiences of distributed energy resources (DERs) on COP24. Please see Delta@COP24 website.
