TAIPEI 101 CSR

WELCOME TO TAIPEI 101

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

The world's tallest green building

TAIPEI 101 has established "Green Tower for All" as the overarching sustainability theme for 2015-2017 in an effort to demonstrate our commitment to become a symbol and beacon for low-carbon emission for the world. In the 2015 CSR Report, we first introduced the theme of our sustainability strategy and our extended definition of "Green", which is applied to the environment and other aspects of sustainability, such as products, society and charity. In 2016, TAIPEI 101 connected such concept to its three major business units each of which is intricately tied to our day-to-day lives, turning the concept of "Green" into actions by incorporating and championing in "Green" in our working, living, shopping and tourism experiences. We aspir e to utilize our influences to inspire people fr om different backgrounds and origins to shape their gr een lifestyles, and ther eby creating a sustainable future.
