I am told that over 400 people from 46 countries have come here for this event and on behalf of the government and people of Taiwan, I want to extend my sincerest welcome to all of you.”

    “The International Real Estate Federation was established 65 years ago and now has 1.5 million members. As the largest international body of real estate professionals in the world, it has made enormous contributions to sound development and innovation in the real estate industry. The Federation’s annual World Congress, moreover, is the most important global gathering place for real estate experts from industry, government and academia.”

    Environmental (Rehabilitation Conservation) Category Gold Winner Humanistic Eco-Campus, Taipei, Taiwan National Taipei University of Technology“The theme of this year’s World Congress is, ‘Innovation in Sustainable Development’. In recent years, low carbon emissions, sustainability and green buildings have hit the global mainstream in the field of architecture. This government has not been able to join the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.”

    Sustainable Development Category Silver Winner Crystal House, Taichung, Taiwan (Productivity Architect Co., Ltd.)“We are not a member of the Kyoto Protocol. Nevertheless, ever since I took office five years ago, this government has been committed to the control of carbon dioxide emissions. We have announced that by the year 2020 we will cut our carbon emissions back to the level of 2005. And in 2025 we will cut them to the level of the year 2000. There is no legal obligation on our part to do that, we do it voluntarily.”

    “Taiwan has achieved considerable success in promoting the construction of green buildings, conservation of energy and reduction of carbon emissions. The public-private effort to promote sustainable development in Taiwan ties in very well with the theme of this year’s Congress, so I feel that the “Taiwan experience” is well worth sharing with the rest of the participants.”
