Cradle-to-cradle approach to cut environmental impact

The cradle-to-cradle approach will help Taiwanese industries, including the textile sector to adopt sustainable production models, said a top ministry official.

In the cradle-to cradle formula, the final goods are meant to be reused once their life-span is over, unlike in the cradle-to-grave approach, in which, the finished goods end up in a waste-bin at the end of their life-span.

The cradle-to-cradle approach will promote safe and efficient use of resources, while at the same time; it will reduce environmental impact, the minister of Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) - Stephen Shu-hung Shen, said.

One Taiwanese-made synthetic textile fabric has been approved under the cradle-to-cradle approach by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute based in Germany, the EPA said.

An alliance made up of NGO's, industries and government agencies will encourage and promote adoption of this concept, the minister added.

The alliance is expected to organise workshops and seminars in Taiwan as part of the initiative to foster adoption of the approach.
