In an era characterised by an increasing emphasis on sustainability and social responsibility, the British Chamber of Commerce in Taipei launched the Better Business Awards to celebrate companies and individuals who integrate innovative and sustainable practices into their operations and significantly benefit society.

Among seven award categories, the "Green Energy Award" specifically recognises companies in Taiwan that are actively promoting the application and development of renewable energy. The award not only considers the company's contributions to the renewable energy industry but also includes its impact on sustainable development, business strategies, and the broader community.
