At KMUTT, our researchers have access to a wide range of resources which allow them to achieve their research ambitions on carbon footprint and greenhouse gases emission topics. School of Energy, Environment and Materials and The Joint Graduate School of Energy and Environment are the main school of university where study on climate change and environmental sustainability. Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Low Income House Construction in Thailand is one example of greenhouse gases research study by applying Life Cycle Assessment theory to calculate carbon emission during construction process.
Carbon Footprint calculator software (SimaPro), Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization guideline are the major tools and reference to calculate carbon emission from activities within campus. The following table provide the total carbon footprint which main source are from both electricity consumption (Gate–to–Gate) and transportation i.e. shuttle bus, EV–bus, private car and motorcycle.
Target: 50 % reduction in CO2 emission by 2024 compared to 2015 baseline
Current Status: In 2020, 51.17 % reduction in CO2 emissionn
KMUTT is committed to environmental leadership in all of our activities from operations, teaching, to conducting research. Our commitments are to be a Green University providing a role model on Energy, Environment, Safety Management Systems, promoting the application of all these activities within the university to encourage our students and colleagues to become change agents for helping the community and society have a better quality of life through the adoption of good energy, environment and safety management systems, and to strive for continual improvement in energy, environment and safety management systems to help achieve sustainability for all.
Our low carbon vision “Our vision for the next decade is to become a world-leading university which will produce the next generation of global leaders in technology with a sound understanding of the principles of sustainable development and in particular the need for us to reduce our Carbon Dioxide emissions and those of other greenhouse gases.”
The Scope 3 emissions have been calculated as follows
-Electricity Usage Per Year
-Transportation Per Year (Bus, Car, Motorcycle)
-Open Space Area Per Total People
Carbon Footprint Per Year
Current Status: in 2019 KMUTT Footprint Per Year is 2086.09 Metric ton
