Bank to provide low-interest loans to green enterprises

A local bank will provide low-interest loans to firms that have been recognized by the government for their environmental practices, a program designed to encourage more companies to help reduce greenhouse gas reductions, the bank said in a statement released Monday.
The Bank of Taiwan will provide the preferential interest rate to enterprises that have won the Environmental Protection Administration's (EPA) Annual Enterprises Environmental Protection Award or the Green Selling Award, in support of the government's environmental policies.
Enterprises that have earned recognition for water or energy conservation from the Ministry of Economic Affairs are also welcome to apply for the low-interest loans, the statement said.
Moreover, shops recognized by the government as green stores, which sell environmentally friendly EPA-certified "Green Mark" products and provide recycling facilities for customers, are eligible to apply for the service.
Qualified enterprises or shops may apply for the lower rates at any of the bank's branches around the country, the statement said.
