A non-profit business organization, BCSD Taiwan has more than seventy members from leading companies in Taiwan. BCSD Taiwan joined the WBCSD shortly after its establishment in 1997. Our goal is to help Taiwanese companies create a roadmap for corporate sustainability.
In August 2021, Jonney Shih, the Chairman of ASUS, was appointed to lead BCSD Taiwan. With Mr. Shih's forward-looking viewpoint, BCSD Taiwan believes that this will advance corporate sustainability in Taiwan and strengthen ties between the council and the business community.
Currently, BCSD Taiwan focuses on climate action, positive nature, circular economy and sustainable finance with the following initiatives:
1. Climate action
2. Nature Positive
3. Circular Economy
4. Sustainable Finance
