SIU Net Zero Emissions

SIU ‘s Pledge to be Net Zero

SIU Unveiled 5 Key Strategies to Become

the “University with Net Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions” by 2050

SIU President pledged to move ahead with greenhouse gas reduction on the Shinawatra University campus targeting Net Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2050 and unveiled 5 pilot strategies for minimizing carbon dioxide emissions and also achieving campus sustainability.

Currently, Net Zero Emission is an issue that many countries around the world are focusing on and urgently addressing following the mandate of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 26th Conference on Climate Change (COP26) in 2021. The mandate supports the goal of limiting the global average surface temperature from rising more than 1.5°C to prevent catastrophes caused by extreme weather events.

​“Shinawatra University has begun collecting all greenhouse gas emissions data within the university in the academic year 2018 and found that the total of greenhouse gas emissions was 3,926.39 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2eq), the majority of which resulted from electricity use on campus. Based on this finding, SIU has developed a plan and issued policies and measures to reduce greenhouse gases more earnestly and intensively,” said The President of Shinawatra University. To reach its Net Zero goal, SIU needs cooperation from everyone in the community and plans are needed to reduce energy consumption in both the short and long terms. SIU has designed a five-strategy SIU ’2050 Net-Zero Transition’ plan as follows:

Energy Transition

Improving Energy System Resilience

Creating Green Growth

The Social Transition Social Support System

Lifestyle Transition
