石門山綠資本有限公司與國立高雄大學於6月20日在台北IEAT會議中心共同舉辦「低碳轉型:台灣碳市場困境到自然為本解方」研討會,探討「以自然為本的解決方案(Nature-based Solutions)」及「生物多樣性(Biodiversity)」被各界大力關注及期待下,企業的碳市場新機遇及挑戰。


研討會由國立高雄大學新能源及電力發展研究中心—連興隆特聘教授,擔任主持人,藉著他的經驗淺談碳市場的變化,介紹以自然為本的解方(NbS)成為企業減碳不可或缺的工具之一。近年來,NbS受到國際間重視成為碳市場討論的熱門話題,此次研討會探討國內外企業執行NbS的作法及所能帶來的影響力,並且展示如何透過自然保護專案來實現多元化的永續目標。更邀請日本碳權開發商針對森林碳匯分享未來需求及預測,並且了解如何利用國際碳驗證機制,提升品牌信譽達成雙贏局面。藉由此次研討會,希望能使有減碳壓力的企業該更清晰了解如何運用NbS突破碳市場困境。

石門山綠資本有限公司—林于筑專案副理從「企業永續解方—NbS的實踐與挑戰」的角度作為研討會的破題,分析近年知名企業投入以NbS之原因及做法,帶領企業深入了解早期參與碳權開發的機會與挑戰,並能帶來的多重效益。除了達到自然保育以外,更能增加生物多樣化,並能達成多項SDGs指標。例如Apple與台積電攜手擴大創新基金Restore Fund,針對高品質的碳移除技術進行投資,今年為了擴大影響力邀請供應商一同投入,透過自身的積極投入加速價值鏈的碳中和目標。


而中華民國企業永續發展協會—莫冬立秘書長以「具氣候效益的自然正向行動-自然氣候解方(NCS)的發展與推動」作為主題,因應氣候變遷並增進多重效益,企業可以從NCS的三大分類保護、管理、恢復層面執行,分享企業利用NCS自願碳權制定可靠的氣候策略,舉例來說在投資高品質的NCS碳權時,應最大限度地提高氣候、社會和自然效益,並盡可能減少任何負面的環境後果,透過更好的自然管理來加速溫室氣體減排效果。例如奇美實業在新加坡氣候影響力交易所(CIX)購買了10,000噸碳權,碳權來源是柬埔寨和秘魯的森林和自然保護專案,根據碳驗證標準VCS進行認證,並實現了聯合國多項永續發展目標,包含增加當地婦女的就業,乾淨的水資源和生物多樣性,


此外E-square Inc. —及川謙執行長從「森林碳權實務經驗」分享日本碳權開發經驗,以及日本自然復育的策略目標,並分享森林管理活動能帶來的減碳效益。近年來,日本企業紛紛響應碳中和目標,特別是在2023年註冊森林管理項目的類別達歷年新高,尤其有50%以上的開發單位為當地政府及公營企業。而在日本政府推出GX-ETS後,更有26%的參與者更願意投資在NbS的項目中,未來更希望透過自身投資的減碳項目,來滿足活動或產品碳中和。根據目前市場的熱烈反應,可期待未來在日本的NbS碳權將會逐年升高。

最後,台灣衛理國際品保驗證股份有限公司—劉懿芬業務經理,分享「國際碳驗證實踐永續新世界」,在歐盟制定了強制性規定生物資源的要求下,探討企業如何建立永續供應鏈,因此企業及品牌開始爭相做出永續性承諾,如聯合利華承諾到2025年確保其所有塑料包裝設計為可重複使用、可回收或可堆肥目標,並透過國際碳驗證ISCC方式,來實現循環經濟跟重要性,發展一個有彈性的經濟體系減緩氣候變遷。


此次研討會的內容兼具深度剖析與實務經驗分享,冀望為與會者帶來更多啟發,整體活動在熱烈的討論與交流中圓滿落幕。主辦方石門山集團不僅是台灣碳權開發商,在亞洲各地也有正在開發的項目,依循國際碳權標進行碳權申請,同時也是台灣首位協助畜牧場開發碳權的開發商,積極協助企業執行永續碳資產管理,提供一站式客製化服務,使企業能夠有效達成長期減碳目標。
