This is based on the following thoughts: First, garbage has long been a big problem that plagues people. It can evolve from environmental health problems to social problems. If not handled properly, it will eventually deteriorate into a political issue. Second, observing that existing social enterprises are mostly economic activities related to agriculture, with high similarity and weak constitution, it is doubtful how long it can last. How to get out of a social enterprise that can sustain development is the focus of discussion. Third, the spirit of social enterprise is a kind of cognition of social responsibility. It is based on the vision and means of running a business, using the theory and knowledge of business management to help the government solve problems that cannot be solved at present, so that the course of the business can be long. For a long time, help the disadvantaged to have a platform for self-reliance, no longer rely on relief, escape from poverty, live a life of dignity, build self-confidence, and then actively enterprising, open up new life, in line with corporate profitability, sustainable development, and solve at the same time social issues, environmental issues, all in one fell swoop. Fourth, there are garbage in some places, so garbage disposal and resource recycling is an industry that will never disappear. It can create new industrial prospects, help disadvantaged people without skills to have job opportunities and maintain their lives, because social enterprises are "Actively taking social issues as a business goal." Waste is not only a health issue, an environmental issue, but also a social issue. DA.AI Technology Co., Ltd. can be said to be the first social enterprise in Taiwan to combine environmental protection and public welfare. The PET bottle that acquired the Tzu Chi recycling station was smelted and reduced into polyester pellets, and 100% recycled polyester fiber was drawn and then made into a blanket. Being served is not only a solution to the problem of Taiwan's plastic flooding, but also a significant reduction in the import of resources. It is indeed a standard social enterprise. In recent years, many new initiatives have emerged in the global village and globalization trend, trying to modify the theory of "consumption-promoting production". Enterprises cannot pursue their own interests in an endless way and the external costs of pollution burden society. We must fulfill corporate social responsibility and recognize that enterprises and society are a community of life. Enterprises have the responsibility to follow the spirit of social enterprise, face their own responsibilities, and always pay attention to local economic, social and environmental concerns in the course of business.
In 1987, the United Nations published "Our Common Future", which defined sustainable development as "to meet the needs of the present, without jeopardizing the development of future generations to meet their needs." The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda contains seventeen goals, seven of which are closely related to the research focus of this paper. The other parts are broadly related and confirm the forward-looking nature of this paper.
