Taoyuan to begin ‘green city’ project in January

The Taoyuan City Government is to start its Autonomous Regulations on Developing Taoyuan City as a Low-Carbon-Emission and Green City (桃園市發展低碳綠色城市自治條例) plan next year.

Taoyuan Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan (鄭文燦) made the announcement during a city council meeting last week, saying that “developing policies to achieve low carbon emissions and ‘green’ city status is a flagship project of the municipal administration,” and the regulations, which were passed by the council at the end of December last year, are to take effect next year.

Cheng said there are five main pillars for Taoyuan’s development of “green” energy and low-carbon emissions: low-carbon living, low-carbon architecture, low-carbon industries, low-carbon transportation and a renewable-energy city, which would be implemented by the city government in coordination with different departments.
