CKPower Public Company Limited has set a goal to reach Net Zero Emissions of greenhouse gases across its electricity generation plants by 2050.
 

Thanawat Trivisvavet, Managing Director of CKPower, said, "We have adopted this challenging goal to reduce our absolute emissions of greenhouse gases by 100%. It's a decision we have made in consideration of the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), and to support Thailand's national policy to rapidly increase renewables-based electricity generation for both domestic as well as industrial use."

CKPower has recently been designated a 'Climate Action Leading Organization' by the 'Thailand Carbon Neutral Network'.

Two cogeneration power plants in which CKPower has invested, and which are operated by Bangpa-in Cogeneration Company Limited, have also just received certification by the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization for successfully meeting the requirements of the Carbon Footprint Label Scheme.

The Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization, an autonomous governmental organization under Thailand's Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, is responsible for supporting and monitoring the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in Thailand and implements a total lifecycle analysis of greenhouse gas emissions.

CKPower is also increasing the share of electricity it produces from renewables to be 95% of its total capacity, up from the current 89%.

The company plans to more than double in size in the next three years and add around 2,800 megawatts of electricity-generating capacity, on top of its current total installed capacity of 2,167 MW across 13 power plants. All of the new installed capacity is to be based on renewables, including solar, wind, and water.
