TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A low carbon initiative led by National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) saw the signing of a memorandum of understanding on Tuesday (Dec. 21) that will promote sustainable development.

The document was inked in a meeting between representatives from NCKU, Tainan City Government, the European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan (ECCT), and Shalun City — an alliance spearheaded by NCKU for smart innovations.

Speaking at the event, NCKU President and convener of Shalun City Su Huey-jen (蘇慧貞) noted that the university has been devoted to exploring many sustainability-centered possibilities on the back of its academic prowess.

ECCT Vice Chairman Giuseppe Izzo reckoned that the chamber has been advocating low-carbon solutions for Taiwan drawing on European experience since the commencement of its Low Carbon Initiative in 2012.

With a theme of sustainable supply chains and urban development, the meeting featured discussions on topics spanning carbon-negative technologies, biomedical clusters, green hydrogen, smart semiconductor manufacturing, and sustainable manufacturing.

As part of the campaign, NCKU has kicked off a five-day event to hammer home the importance of sustainability on campus, including an exhibition showcasing the university’s effort for the cause.
