Taiwan Green Trade Project Office Spotlights the Cutting Edge in Green

Solutions, Designed to International Environmental Standards

TAIWAN, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In recent years, countries all

around the world have tried to make going green a goal to elevate

competitiveness, and to raise soft power in green through

participating in international exhibitions with magnificent designs.

However, decoration and packaging in an exhibition can leave a sizable

footprint on the planet. Taiwan's green trade project office recently

introduced "Taiwan Green Products Demo House," which is essentially an

environmentally friendly, reusable exhibition show booth with all its

state-of-the-art materials certified by international and domestic

green standards. The demo house, built entirely with green materials,

is flexible in assembling and disassembling like Lego bricks. In

addition, it cuts waste without sacrificing style.

Taiwan Green Products Demo House embodies some of Taiwan's best green

ideas and products. All materials and items used, including the

flooring, display window, energy-saving devices, and intelligent

control systems, are manufactured in Taiwan. For example, the LED

dimmer can be operated by a smart phone or computer. By simply swiping

the key card, this smart interactive device is able to control the

door, the lighting, the air conditioner, the gas valve, many other

electronic appliances, and even the air quality.

"Some manufacturers might feel that adopting environmental practices

or integrating environmental compliance into product development is

costly. But an increasing number of Taiwanese companies have come to

realize that such investment is profitable, can create new

opportunities, and drive competitiveness," says GTPO deputy director

Lih-Chyi Wen. "Taiwan is well positioned to engage in green trade as

it has developed related technologies, products and services to an

international standard."

With the Taiwan Green Products Demo House, exhibitors can now gain big

savings on exhibition costs and also participate in worldwide

exhibitions in a much more environmentally friendly way. After 2 years

of participation and preparation, GTPO presents Taiwan Green Products

Demo House at Ecobuild 2014, March 4-6, in London Excel. For this

exhibition, GTPO incorporates 14 Taiwanese companies displaying a

comprehensive range of products to promote a greener, smarter, and

healthier living experience. In the years to come, GTPO also plans to

feature various themes for different markets and exhibitions.

In addition to presenting quality green products to the world, GTPO

highlights one of its main missions of becoming "Your one stop link to

Taiwan's green products and services." GTPO helps introduce best

quality and pricing through excusive relationships with top

manufacturers in Taiwan. Since 2010, the office has been conducting

ongoing and extensive benchmarking to select high-end, competitive

suppliers for its portfolio. The online products guild, Taiwan Eco

Products Directory, features over 400 green products, all with

international or domestic green certificates. Taiwan has a strong

background in manufacturing and information technology. Flexibility,

economy, and quality are also outstanding features of Taiwanese

companies. It will be very helpful for international sectors looking

for partners adept in providing customized smart and green solutions.
