TCI Co., Ltd. Declares 100% Renewable Energy by 2030 at APEC Cross-Fora Forum
TAIPEI, Mar 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

TCI Co., Ltd. (TCI) was invited to attend the " Utilizing Renewable Energy 
Certification to Facilitate APEC Regional Renewable Energy Growth " press 
conference held by the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection on March 
2. TCI Chairman Vincent Lin announced that TCI will complete the use of 100% 
renewable energy by 2030, becoming the leader of Taiwan’s manufacturing 
industry on energy saving and setting a global environmental positive benchmark 
in the biotechnology sector. 

Chairman Vincent Lin shared at the press conference that he applied to RE100 in 
2017 and was selected to join in 2018. During the application process, when 
setting the target, he received a suggestion that the target date could be set 
at 2045 or even 2050. At that time, he thought that energy saving and carbon 
emission reduction was the right future and should be implemented ahead of 
schedule, so he was determined to meet the target by 2030. From the very 
beginning, he started to review the existing business projects, and as long as 
there is a conflict with the use of renewable energy, it is not a project that 
will be able to survive in the future. He adjusted the services of TCI in 
response to the trend of renewable energy use and energy saving, carbon 
reduction, and started the process of achieving 100% renewable energy by 2030 
with a balanced benchmark that can embrace both blessings and financial 
returns. Vincent Lin said that the business leaders from various fields who 
participated in the event are partners in energy saving and carbon reduction, 
each with their own expertise, and will be able to support each other on the 
way to 100% renewable energy use.

The press conference was attended by Chief Secretary of the Ministry of 
Economic Affairs, Deputy Executive Director of the Office of Energy and Carbon 
Reduction of the Executive Yuan, Director of the Bureau of Standards, Metrology 
and Inspection, Executive Director of the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), 
USA, and representatives of companies participating in the Taiwan Forum, 
including Chairman of AUO, President of Cathay Financial Holdings, Chief 
Sustainability Officer of Delta Electronics, Chairman of TCI, Director of PwC 
Taiwan, and Chairman of Taipei 101.

The APEC Online Forum, which will be launched from March 7 to 9 with the theme 
"Utilizing Renewable Energy Certification to Facilitate APEC Regional Renewable 
Energy Growth", is the first time for 21 APEC member economies to promote 
renewable energy-related issues in the region from the perspective of renewable 
energy certification. The theme of the forum is discussed from the policy 
system side, market side and enterprise ESG side, and it is also the first time 
that Taiwan co-organizes a cross-fora forum on "energy" and "standards" in the 
APEC international conference venue, which is of key significance to the future 
development of renewable energy and certification market.
