Celebrity Seminars for Ideas from the Heart

Technology and the environment are both changing at an increasing pace. New researches on environmental issues are constantly emerging as well. As global citizens, we need to be alert to the latest trends and adjust our direction as necessary. “Celebrity Seminars” are therefore hosted by the Green Action Plan on selected environmental issues. Leading local academics or experts are invited to speak on these topics to keep all employees up to date on the latest environmental knowledge, and help them grasp the proper concepts and attitudes.

The seminars cover a diverse range of topics including energy-saving and carbon reduction, environmental design, sustainable corporate development, preservation of biodiversity, conservation of the marine ecology, and the small farmer renaissance. Since 2018, we hold seminars covering the issues of hazardous substances in order to make staff more aware of the links between (external and internal) environmental issues and their health.

The seminars only provide with vegetarian lunch boxes instead of meat lunch boxes and also provide eco-friendly agricultural products as gifts for quiz winners. These actions look small and limited yet can create multiple effects.

Environmental Education Hands-on Activities

Environmental protection can be easy and interesting! With “everyday environmental protection” as the theme, the Green Action Plan emphasizes the importance of hands-on practice. We organize many seminars and activities to enhance the environmental awareness of all employees while cultivating the necessary knowledge, attitude, and skills so they can take action at work and in everyday life right away. People can then practice environmental protection and combat global warming at all times. This will in turn influence their family and the whole society.

Low-Carbon LOHAS and Ecological Care

Every corner in Taiwan has its own unique culture and environment. Local communities also develop their own way of living a low-carbon lifestyle. Green Action Plan organizes low-carbon LOHAS activities every year in order to motivate employees to support environmental protection while having fun. Employees can use visits to sustainable communities to slow down and experience the different ecological features and cultural wisdom of northern Taiwan communities. They can also savor the true meaning of LOHAS and ecological care.
