India and Taiwan Cooperate on Green Productivity
The goals before the National Productivity Organisations of India and Taiwan are Green Growth and Green Productivity. India's National Productivity Council (NPC), which is the top autonomous body for promoting productivity and is part of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, and Taiwan's China Productivity Centre have been working together to help Indian MSME become greener by using high-tech products and processes in a variety of sectors.
Since the mid-1990s, NPC India has provided energy and environmental solutions to Indian businesses. NPC has just taken on a key role to assist the industry in meeting sustainable goals.
NPC India hosted a 12-member Taiwanese professional team on an eight-day business mission to India as part of its continued partnership with Taiwan under the framework of the intergovernmental Asian Productivity Organisation (APO Tokyo).
Industry leaders, experts, and service providers in green technology, climate resilience, energy efficiency, smart e-mobility, wastewater treatment, and smart agriculture make up the team.
NPC and its counterpart in Taiwan have put a lot of attention on cloud-connected e-mobility, elevators that generate power, energy-saving HVAC systems for buildings, Bionet and electrodialysis for treating industrial wastewater, and IoT-based grain processing and storage.
The Indian cross-sectoral team, which included businesses, central ministries, cooperatives, and MSMEs, met with the visiting group to talk about business in depth.
Ms. Lih Kuan Lee of the China Productivity Centre in Taipei says that, based on her experience in the Indian business world, there are many ways for Taiwanese green technologies to cut India's energy use by 10–15% while also cutting India's greenhouse gas emissions by the same amount.
The Taiwanese Centre of Excellence on Green Productivity offers assistance in developing and implementing green technology and practices based on Taiwanese expertise. During their trip to India, the delegates will go to Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Tamil Nadu to see hospitals, wastewater treatment plants, engineering institutions, and other businesses.
It is worth noting that the Indian Government has pledged to reach 500 GW of non-fossil energy capacity by 2030, as well as 50% of its energy consumption from renewable sources by 2030, on its way to Net Zero by 2070.
