Internship Code: TPBS120

Company Description:

This company is a social enterprise and Taiwan’s first Certified B Corporation dedicated to creating a better climate future. Small actions, like changing to energy-efficient LEDs and adopting climate-friendly behaviors, when multiplied across millions of small businesses and tens of millions of individuals, can make a big difference in helping the island to achieve its energy and climate goals.

The Paris Agreement creates a consensus among the world’s governments, setting a target (i.e. the Two Degrees Scenario) and the framework of intergovernmental cooperation on transitioning to a low-carbon economy. However, even in this scenario, the world of tomorrow is forecast to be more volatile and less prosperous than the one today. This company refuses to accept this. The slow trickle down of policy action cannot achieve the world we want. Only concerted, collective action among all players in society can. For this, we need a social movement – one where individuals are responsible to one another and where everyone has a role to play. That is what this company is creating.

As an intern working with this project, you will be supporting the launch of the program and the establishment of a learning community around these issues.
