中文摘要
行政院環保署為落實「行政院環境保護署傾聽人民聲音推動實施計畫」,故辦理「99年上半年度環保共識會議計畫」。本計畫主要工作內容包括辦理「99年上半年度環保共識會議」與「環保共識會議檢討會議」。共識會議討論議題為「你是否支持產品碳足跡標籤制度並從日常購物中參與減碳?」,藉由報名簡章、登報與網站等方式傳播會議訊息,參與報名成員共計136人,並由指導委員會篩選出25位共識成員。
四天會議於99年7月11日、18日、25日與8月1日四星期日辦理完成,共計23位成員全程參與。會議第一天主要提供成員建立背景知識,第二天進行成員與專家座談,拋出問題讓成員思考,並由成員提出問題,進行意見交流;下午則將討論議題分為(一)你是否支持產品碳足跡標籤制度?並於日常生活中參與碳足跡標示產品之購買?與(二)你認為政府在推動產品碳標籤制度時需考量或加強哪些事項?兩項子議題進行分組討論。為利於形成初步共識結論,第三天,再於綜合討論中逐步進行達到初步共識,並於8月1日上午由發言人與成員一一確認並完成「99年上半年度環保共識會議結論報告」,當日下午進行結論發表。共識結論中,有16位成員支持產品碳足跡標籤制度,2位持中立立場,5位不支持此項制度。另外針對政府未來推動碳足跡標籤制度之重點工作,共識會議成員提出六大方向,包括:(一)明定碳足跡政策推動目標;(二)防止企業做為「漂綠行銷」工具;(三)加強民眾對「碳足跡」標籤認識;(四)鼓勵企業生產低碳產品;(五)標示(章)簡化與提高公信力與(六)加強廣告稽查等。
共識會議結束後的一周內,召開檢討會議,邀請指導委員會、共識成員代表、環保署代表與工作小組,會議中針對「會議訊息傳播方式」、「會議成員多元性」與「共識凝聚方式」等項目提出建議,以作為後續辦理會議之參考。

英文摘要:
The purpose of the project was to hold an Environmental Consensus Conference and a review conference in the first half of 2010. The question, “Do you support the product carbon footprint system, and carry out energy saving and carbon reduction in daily purchasing?” was put forth and discussed in the conference. A hundred and thirty-six individuals applied to attend the conference and 25 were selected according to the selecting rules set up by the Conference Advisory Committee.
The conference was held on four successive Sundays from July 11th to August 1st. On the first day, lectures were arranged to provide members with relevant background. On the following two days, a forum for experts and businesses was held to provide experience exchange. On the third day, two sub-issues were discussed in the group discussion, i.e.(I)Do you support the product carbon footprint system, and carry out energy saving and carbon reduction in daily purchasing? And (II) What kind of strategies should the government adopt when proposing the product carbon footprint system? The diverse comments gradually converged into a consensus during the panel discussion.
After consensus results were checked by the panel of members, the “Environmental Consensus Conference Conclusion Report for the First Half of 2010” was accomplished and announced to the public on August 1st. According to the conclusion report, 16 members supported the system, 5 members didn’t support the system, and 2 members took a neutral stance. Six suggestions were proposed for the government: (I) Set a clear objective for promoting the policy, (II) Prevent businesses from taking advantage of the system as a tool for “green washing”, (III) Help the public better recognize the system, (IV) Encourage businesses to produce low-carbon products, (V) Simplify the labeling-system and enhance its reliability, and (VI) Strengthen the auditing of advertisements. In order to evaluate the outcome of the consensus conference, the conference advisory committee members, panel representatives and the EPA representatives were invited to join the review conference held on August 16th. The conference has produced suggestions for “spreading the messages of the conference”, “selecting diverse panel members” and “forming a consensus”, which are good references for future conferences.
