Unithai Shipyard Recognized for Curbing Greenhouse Gases

Unithai Shipyard Recognized for Curbing Greenhouse Gases
Danny Gill

Unithai Shipyard has continued their efforts to reduce greenhouse gases and have recently earned a certificate of appreciation from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment for the second consecutive year.

Minister General Surasak Karnjanarat presented the certificate from the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organisation in recognition of an outstanding contribution to the LESS initiative – the Low Emission Support Scheme introduced in 2012 to raise awareness about the dangers of climate change.

To accomplish these greenhouse reductions, Unithai Shipyard and Engineering Ltd has replaced fluorescent lighting in workplaces with LED lighting and introduced recycling as part of its waste-management scheme. Together these undertakings have had the equivalent effect of reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 5,850 tCO2e – more than 10 times the level achieved last year.
