  Delta Electronics' Tainan Plant Awarded Taiwan's First "Gold-rated"
Green Building Certificate
 
   
   
Taipei, Taiwan, October 4, 2006 – Delta Electronics, Inc., today received Taiwan's first "gold-rated" green building certificate from the Ministry of Interior's (MOI) Architecture and Building Research Institute (ABRI) at an official green factory certification ceremony held at Delta's Tainan subsidiary. Delta's green factory passed nine major benchmarks for ecology, environment, waste reduction, and health (EEWH) set forth by the MOI's green building evaluation system. It is the first building to pass all nine EEWH indexes, earning it the MOI's "2006 Green Building of the Year" award.

At the ceremony, ABRI director He Ming-chin presented the "gold-rated" green building certificate to Delta's chairman Bruce Cheng, who then formally placed the certificate in the facility's main lobby. Cheng said that as the world's largest provider of switching power supplies, Delta Electronics has always made environmental protection and energy conservation the mission of the company. "We have visited completed green buildings in Germany and Thailand, so when we started planning the new facility the first thing we looked at was how to use natural building materials and architecture to reduce energy consumption. We also planned to make the ecological environment as natural as possible. This award for our Tainan plant is just as a small step forward for us. Our next step is to ensure that Delta's future factories are all green buildings, no matter where they are in the world. We hope that the environmentally-friendly, energy-saving products and technologies developed at Delta will become a part of everyone's daily life."

Director He Ming-ching pointed out that Delta's Tainan plant was a mixed office-factory building situated within a science park, so it required far more effort than an ordinary residential or office building to be awarded Taiwan's first "gold-rated" green building certificate. He also acknowledged Delta's visionary approach to environmental protection and energy conservation as well as Chairman Cheng's dedication to the environment.

Professor Lin Hsien-te of the Department of Architecture at National Cheng Kung University was responsible for the initial proposal, design, planning and construction of the green facility. He is one of only a few scholars heavily involved in green building research. In his speech, he recalled, "I heard that Chairman Cheng was interested in the green building concept, but I hadn't expected him to put me in charge of the project before we had even met. When we met I discovered that Mr. Cheng was an entrepreneur truly dedicated to environmental friendliness, energy conservation, and ecological protection."

The new Tainan plant is situated on 1.89 hectares of land in the Tainan Science Park. Built entirely using green building methods, it provides an "ecological, energy-saving, waste reduction and healthy" working environment. The plant achieves up to 31% in energy savings while water usage is reduced by up to 50%. An excellent work environment is not only the best investment for the company; it also significantly improves worker's health and conserves energy. Green buildings are an excellent example of environmentalism and energy conservation that also provide benefits for employee lifestyles and health. As we strive to conserve our natural resources, green buildings offer hope for a better future.
