The living environment has inevitably transferred to sustainable development in the global trend. This project is primarily focusing on the establishment of low carbon living policies and its promotion strategies, as well as the overview of the status quo of low carbon livings which contain the international and domestic demonstrations. It then analyzed those overseas examples and discussed those existing domestic low carbon living in terms of the policies and real practices. Following it, the project will contribute to addressing the stage-based blueprint of low carbon living policies and promotion strategies for domestic use after combining the viewpoints from various realms of professionals and evaluating the feasibility of low carbon living certified program. The success of establishing the low carbon living policies and its promotion strategies depend largely on the central government that is in charge of guiding the local governments, integrating the resources and unifying the promotion strategies to provide mutual support and maximize the carbon reduction efficiency. Ultimately, we hope to construct our home to be a low carbon living environment and promote Taiwan toward a lovely sustainable country.
This project contains the collection and analysis of some of the overseas low carbon living demonstrations （i.e. United Kingdom, Mainland China, Germany, Japan and United States）. It also carried out the formation of 4 groups of ‘low carbon living techniques and information’ and 2 workshops of ‘low carbon strategies, coordination and promotion’. Meanwhile, the project involved various facets of low carbon living-related information （i.e. techniques, economy, finance, legal, societal tools, relevant product, technical specifications, suppliers, cost efficiency and successful case studies）, and the creative methods of international and domestic low carbon living. The relevant low carbon living information is shown on the ‘Low Carbon Sustainable Information System’ that provide useful information for promoting low carbon living style throughout Taiwan.
