Carbon Footprint for Organization (CFO)
An unstopped emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) due to a variety of human activities from energy consumption, production of goods and services, transportation, deforestation, use of natural resources and environment in other forms will result in global warming, consequently causing climate change. At present, this climate change becomes international problem that everyone and all sectors must join hands to reduce such emissions, whereas the government sector gives sincere support to solve the climate change problem and to promote a concrete low-carbon society so that Thailand’s target to reduce the greenhouse gases of 20-25% from the case of normal operations would be met by 2030.
From the impact of global warming, many countries around the world have been alert to take actions to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. Carbon Footprint for Organization (CFO) is a method of evaluating the volume of greenhouse gases emitted from all activities of an organization. Such emission is calculated in the form of Carbon Dioxide equivalent, which would lead to an establishment of management guidelines to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases efficiently.
As the Company realizes the importance of CFO, it has collected direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions data from its activities in order to evaluate the volume of greenhouse gases emitted by the organization. The evaluation results would be used to develop the guidelines for reducing the Company’s greenhouse gas emissions efficiently, and to report it in accordance with the requirements for calculating and reporting if the Carbon Footprint for Organization by Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (Public Organization) or TGO, which is a registration and certification agency for greenhouse gas information.
In 2022, the Company carried out its CFO for the first time by determining the corporate scope in the greenhouse gas inventories based on operational control approach and collecting data on the Company’s activities of emitting greenhouse gases in 2021 from Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emission sources, and Scope 3 GHG emission source. The carbon footprint verification guideline issued by TGO was used as a verification criterion, whereas the report had been verified for accuracy and reliability and certified by an external verifier ECEE Company Limited.
The Company has not yet had the base year for reference and comparison as it has just provided Carbon Footprint for Organization for the first year.
Table Shows the Assessment Result for Greenhouse Gases Emitted from the Company’s Activities in 2021
|Scope||Corporate Emission of Greenhouse Gases (Ton CO2e)||Proportion (%)|
|Total (Scope 1+2)||129||89|
|Total (Scope 1+2+3)||145||100|
From the above, the largest source of greenhouse gas emission of the Company was from Scope 2 due to the use of electricity in the office, representing 56 % of the total greenhouse gas emission scopes. The total quantity of carbon footprint of Scope 1 and 2 is 129 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (Ton CO2e). In the following year, the Company will prepare a report to assess the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by its activities in order to compare the results with the previous year’s report and plan to further manage greenhouse gas emission reduction.
