         In this process, EGAT did a carbon footprint assessment and reported the organization’s greenhouse gas emissions and removals, and was certified for ISO 14064-1 standard from Bureau Veritas Certification (Thailand) Ltd. totaling 12 departments. The organization’s greenhouse gas emissions during the follow-up period from January - December 2016 was 38.85 million CO2e.

         Carbon footprint assessment is a way to report the organization’s greenhouse gas emissions and removals. It can significantly identify the cause of greenhouse gas emissions. EGAT began reporting the amount of greenhouse gas emissions of power plants and departments according to ISO 14064-1 standard since in 2013 to show transparency which will lead to efficient management of EGAT’s and Thailand’s greenhouse gas emissions.
