Information technology has advanced rapidly and has long been used in various fields and industries. The accumulated data are valuable in practical applications related to topics, such as scientific research, commercial development, and policy-making references. Recent global climate anomalies are due to the ongoing reclamation and extensive use of natural resources in the ongoing process of human evolution and development. Demand for industrial development and economic competition among countries have caused high CO2 emissions, which is becoming a severe problem. Through analyzing relevant big data, people can explore the causes of high CO2 emissions and propose effective solutions. Factors contributing to high CO2 emissions not only include the strong dependence on energy and its use in economic, industrial, and commercial development, but families and individuals also contribute to air pollution. To solve this problem, this study investigated topics on public policy issues involving big data, community education effectiveness, and low-interest loans. In addition, this study adopted the Delphi method, analytical hierarchy process, and fuzzy logic theory to establish a multicriteria decision-making model based on big data to evaluate the processes of reducing air pollution in urban areas. Because community education contributes to resolving public policy problems, the proposed MCDM model enables researchers to determine improvements in urban air quality and aids in discerning the effects of community education on the promotion of environmental protection policies. In addition, this study proposed methods involving grants and low-interest financing to enhance improvements. © 2017, ALÖKI Kft., Budapest, Hungary.

Because of its geographic location, local characteristics and interconnections among its members, a community is often the basic unit for policy advocacy and implementation. With the worsening environmental pollutions nowadays around the world, problems such as greenhouse gas emissions, climate change, melting polar ice, and endangered species all demand the most urgent attention. In particular, high CO2 emissions have caused unpredictable climate anomalies and disasters, posing as a severe and direct threat to the lives and properties of some people in the world. It is now an urgent priority to arouse higher awareness of the importance of environmental protection through education. In this study, the multi-criteria decision making methods of Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the quantification functions of fuzzy logic theory are used to build a quantitative evaluation model for community-based environmental education. © 2017, ALÖKI Kft., Budapest, Hungary.

The trends of the green supply chain are attributed to pressures from the environment and from customers. Green innovation is a practice for creating competitive advantage in sustainable development. To keep up with the changing business environment, the construction industry needs an appropriate assessment tool to examine the intrinsic and extrinsic effects regarding corporate competitive advantage. From the viewpoint of energy and environmental protection, this study combines four scientific methodologies to develop an assessment model for the green innovation of contractors. System dynamics can be used to estimate the future trends for the overall industrial structure and is useful in predicting competitive advantage in the industry. The analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and utility theory focus on the customer's attitude toward risk and are useful for comprehending changes in objective requirements in the environment. Fuzzy logic can simplify complicated intrinsic and extrinsic factors and express them with a number or ratio that is easy to understand. The proposed assessment model can be used as a reference to guide the government in examining the public constructions that qualified green contractors participate in. Additionally, the assessment model serves an indicator of relative competitiveness that can help the general contractor and subcontractor to evaluate themselves and further green innovations. © 2013 Sung-Lin Hsueh and Min-Ren Yan.

This study proposes the promotion of environmental protection education among communities as a solution to the serious problems of high energy consumption and carbon emissions around the world. Environmental protection education has direct and lasting influences on everyone in society; therefore, it is helpful in our fight against many serious problems caused by high energy consumption. In this study, the Delphi method and the fuzzy logic theory are used to develop a quantizing assessment model based on qualitative analysis. This model can be used to assess the results and influences of community residents' participation in environmental protection education on green community development. In addition, it can be used to provide references for governing authorities in their decision making of green community development policies. © 2013 Sung-Lin Hsueh.

Taiwan is a nation densely concentrated with industrial properties, causing a high level of greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, poor air quality and environmental pollution in Taiwan are severe societal problems. Although Taiwan has formulated severe environmental protection-related penalties, the excessive use of energy and high level of pollution remain a persisting environmental problem in Taiwan. Because communities are collective groups beneficial for the promotion of local policies, several subsidy policies for environmental quality improvement are currently promoted through community development in Taiwan. These policies consider factors such as Taiwan's long-day geographical environment and the increase in idle agricultural land after the process of economic transition. To explore the effectiveness of promoting these policies, this study applied the Delphi method and fuzzy logic theory to establish a quantified effectiveness assessment model. In addition, we determined that communities that encourage the participation of its residents and factors such as proenvironment, solar power, and plain afforestation enhanced the overall environmental protection of the community and reduced the emission of CO2. Furthermore, the core problems that hinder the improvement of current policies were identified. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. Published by Elsevier Ltd.

A township consists of diversified communities, and communities are the basic units of local infrastructure. The public buildings, public lighting equipment, private buildings, and community residents are the normal-state energy consuming aggregates. As community organizations have great influences, the promotion of community energy-saving policy under the organizational influence, along with the concepts of direction, evaluation, and subsidy, can help to realize the community energy-saving policies. This study uses the Delphi method and fuzzy logic theory to construct a quantized community energy-saving multi-attribute effect evaluation model, in order to evaluate the processes of community energy-saving promotional effects. Quantization is used as the criterion for reviewing the outcome of policy implementation, thus helping to achieve a low-carbon lifestyle of communities. © 2014, Gh.
