At a ceremony held today at the Sheraton Taipei, Delta Electronics’ Chairman Bruce Cheng endowed his alma mater, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), with NT$100 million to construct the Y.S. Sun Green Building Research Center. Commemorating Y.S. Sun, one of Taiwan’s most admired statesmen, the new center will promote research into green architecture. NCKU President Chiang Kao also announced at the ceremony that NT$40 million would be allocated to equip the building for research into solar power, energy and environmental monitoring, and green building research.

Once considered the dark horse of Taiwan’s economic miracle, the electronics industry is currently leading a push to protect the environment and Delta Electronics is in the forefront of companies actively involved in environmental protection. Delta has made major investments in solar-powered photovoltaic products and energy-saving electronics and has established the Delta Electronics Foundation. Through these efforts Delta is contributing to a culture of environmental protection and energy saving among Taiwan companies and is now advancing education and research for green buildings.

At the ceremony Mr. Cheng remarked that the threat of global warming and damage to the ozone layer means that humanity is faced with a crisis. “The damage and pollution caused by human activity and industrial development is destroying the Earth’s ecological balance. The damage has occurred gradually and has gone unnoticed by people busy with their work and personal lives. This man-made environmental damage is becoming increasingly serious. Prompt action must be taken to save the environment or our civilization could quickly slide into oblivion.” Mr. Cheng said he is delighted to contribute to the construction of the Y.S. Sun Green Building Research Center as well as promote green building concepts and environmental education at NCKU.
