Delta’s Founder Bruce Cheng and Prominent Author Thomas L. Friedman Discuss Ways to Respond to the Rapidly Changing World
TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 22, 2017 – Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, announced its founder and honorary chairman, Bruce C.H. Cheng, today participated as a panelist in the Global Views Monthly Taipei Forum 2017, organized by Global Views Monthly magazine and featuring Thomas L. Friedman, columnist for The New York Times and three time Pulitzer Prize winner. Mr. Cheng shared his views regarding the way corporations should respond to the rapidly changing world, a concept conceived by Mr. Friedman on his book “Thank you for Being Late”.
Mr. Friedman emphasized that the next ten years will be defined by the world’s three largest forces–the Market (the digitalization of the global economy), Mother Nature (climate change) and Moore’s Law (technological advancements), thus, arguing that these forces are changing the world in an accelerating fashion, especially in key areas such as geopolitics, work security, social ethics and community roles. Delta’s founder, Bruce C.H. Cheng, remarked, “We all, corporations and individuals, must continuously pursue innovation. At Delta, we invest approximately 6% of our annual revenues in R&D to challenge the barriers of energy efficiency in our products and to pursue further opportunities in new segments such as electric vehicle traction systems, advanced components and charging technology, industrial and building automation as well as energy infrastructure. In regards to climate change, mankind still must reduce 14 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions to reach the 2°C target set by the Paris Agreement. According to the International Energy Agency, the most effective method to achieve such target is energy efficiency enhancement, especially in end-use application, transportation, and building sectors, all of which are indeed Delta’s focus.” Since the year 2000, Delta has been widening its business scope beyond information and communication technology and into the energy sector while also enhancing the energy conversion efficiency of its products. From 2010 to 2016, Delta helped customers save 20.8 billion kWh of electricity, thus, preventing approximately 11.07 million tons in carbon emissions. Furthermore, Delta has been excelling in “green manufacturing” by lowering the electricity intensity of its major production facilities by 50% between 2009 and 2014 while committing to a further 30% reduction by 2020. Delta has also been actively promoting the green building concept for more than a decade. Since the construction of its Tainan Plant I in 2006, Delta has enabled the creation of 24 green buildings across the world. Among these, Delta’s headquarters for the Americas region and the Namasia Minchuan Elementary School campus building are highly remarkable examples. The former is not only a green building but it is expected to become a “net-zero energy building” while the latter boasts energy use intensity (annual kWh consumed per square meter) below 7, meaning it saves more than 70% electricity when compared to campus buildings in the same category. Thomas L. Friedman is a three time Pulitzer Prize winner and the author of best-selling books such as “The World is Flat”, “Hot, Flat and Crowded” and “Thank you for Being Late”.
