New Taipei City in northern Taiwan is one of the 10 best metropolises in the
world when it comes to climate reporting, according to the local government’s Environmental Protection Department Dec. 8.
The city was selected by London-based Carbon Disclosure Project for a high-quality response to the 2015 CDP Cities Questionnaire across such areas as action plans, strategies and reaching carbon footprint reduction targets.
In a congratulatory letter, CDP said New Taipei will be featured in its upcoming InFocus City Reports, adding that the annual publication provides an outstanding stage to showcase “hard work and commitment to climate change action and resilience.”
According to an NTC Government official, the biggest metropolis in Taiwan is also the champion of sustainability. “This achievement is another vote of confidence from the global community in our carbon emissions reduction capability.” [FULL STORY]
