節能減碳人才 職場新寵兒

「再生能源條例」甫通過三讀,企業對於新興環保人力的需求愈來愈大,環保署預計在7、8月間培訓第一批取得資格的「碳查驗」人才,起薪上看5萬元。

隨著能源三法施行,相關環保、節能規劃人才,可望成為大失業潮下的搶手人才。
能源三法中,「能源管理法修正草案」、「再生能源條例」已完成三讀,管制碳排放的「溫室氣體減量法」則交付朝野協商中,法規框架成形,節能減碳人才正受到人力市場矚目。

除了技術面的查驗人員,企業永續發展協會秘書長黃正忠表示,目前國內最缺的節能人力是同時具備管理、財務、國際溝通及碳資產觀念的策略人才。

黃正忠表示,以往負責企業節能領域人員多為環工背景出身,現在跨領域的環境專才相當吃香,各家都搶著要。另外,企業對低碳產品的研發,也有很大的需求。

由於溫減法通過後首當其衝,石化、發電、鋼鐵、水泥等排碳大戶在三、五年前大多已進行內部人力布局,而協助企業減碳的顧問公司、進行盤查認證的查驗機構,長期都可望因此獲利。

溫減法草案中已明定,溫室氣體需透過第三方查驗機構,進行認證與盤查管理。國內企業過去對於自行抵減專案、環評承諾減量值,都還未有查驗認證經驗。

Taiwan proposes new energy & emissions taxes

The Cabinet’s Tax Reform Committee yesterday reached a consensus to introduce an incremental levy on gasoline, diesel, gas and other energy sources, as well as on greenhouse gas emissions, but remained undecided over proposed pollution taxes. 
 
The reforms, seeking to enhance energy conservation and rein in the nation’s carbon dioxide emissions, will head next to the Cabinet and legislature and, if agreed, are expected to take effect in 2011.

The Greening of Politics – speech by Greens Leader Senator Bob Brown

On October 22, 2009 four Green Party Taiwan representatives (Ying Hsuan Li, Karl Haby, Yi Show Chen and Keli Yen) attended the Green New Deal Conference in Melbourne, Australia with a mission to meet members of Australia’s Green political scene and share ideas together regarding the localization of the Global Green New Deal into the Asia Pacific region in general and Taiwan in particular.

The two-day conference began with a keynote speech by Senator Bob Brown on the topic of “the greening of politics”.  Following are highlights drawn from his speech:

The Green New Deal Conference. Melbourne, 10/24-25, 2009

We are living in extraordinary times. Our choice is to move consciously towards a new sustainable and satisfying future or be overwhelmed by multiple converging global crises. Business as usual—a return to “trend growth”—is not a viable option. The idea of a “green new deal” is shorthand for taking deliberate, long-sighted, transformative steps to tackle these crises, not piecemeal, but in an integrated and holistic fashion.

回應媒體報導「我參與氣候公約遭矮化」

  有關10月2日媒體報導「我參與氣候公約遭矮化」乙事,經查我非政府組織進行與會報名時,係以我正式國名「R.O.C. Taiwan」作為所在國家名稱,但聯合國屢次擅自將我與會單位聯絡地址資訊強行變更為China,我與會成員於1995年召開氣候公約第一次締約國大會時即向大會提出抗議,爾後歷次與會亦陸續提出書面或口頭抗議,惟涉及聯合國規章,迄今仍未獲妥善處理。過去民進黨執政八年,每年參加締約國大會受到同樣的待遇,其所面臨的國際政治現實及困境與目前相同。因此,部分在野黨人士,近日以此指責馬政府為「一再退守」、「太過分」、「太離譜」,明顯是以放縱自己人,嚴以責人之「雙重標準」誤導民眾,獲取個人政治利益。新政府上台後積極宣示將推動我國有意參與聯合國相關周邊專業組織或公約,則是希望為此困境找到突破與妥善解決之道。
