British Office Taipei invites climate champion award applications

By British Office Taipei

LONDON, England – The British Office Climate Champion Award is one of the British Chamber of Commerce in Taipei (BCCT)’s annual Better Business Awards (BBA).

It is open to companies with operations in Taiwan that have taken significant steps to reduce their carbon footprint and have acted as a climate leader. Such steps include raising awareness with stakeholders, working with supply chains to reduce emissions, or introducing methods to reduce their carbon footprint or joining specific climate-related initiatives.

This is the first award of its kind that the British Office has supported. We will highlight one company in Taiwan that has taken a leadership role on climate and embedded climate action into all aspects of its business operations.

John Dennis, British Representative in Taipei said:

“The UK is leading the international business community in reducing emissions and tackling climate change, with well over a third of the UK’s largest companies now signed up to the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign, which encourages businesses to pledge to cut their emissions to net zero by 2050 or sooner. The British Office Climate Champion Award will recognise those companies who are leading the way in Taiwan and, we hope, will inspire others to raise their climate ambition.”

The deadline for submission of applications is 6 August 2021.

Full details on the application process of Climate Champion Award are on the BCCT Better Business Awards website. The award will be presented at the BCCT’s annual Better Business Awards on 29 September 2021 and the winner will be promoted through the HM Government channels as the British Office’s climate champion.
