GHG Emissions


Climate change is a key factor affecting sustainable development and human well-being. As a result, it becomes the global issue pulling collaborations across the world to lower GHG emissions and alleviate its impacts. Many countries have jointly set the common goals to lessen GHG emissions so as to control a rise of the earth’s average temperature to well below two degrees Celsius. Consequently, the policies and applicable laws have been set up in many countries to promote GHG emission reductions and efficient energy consumption, such as a system permitting to trade GHGs or the Emission Trading Scheme (ETS), limitation of fuel consumption for energy production, a promotion of more renewable energy investments, carbon tax, etc. As such, these are both challenges and important opportunities for BPP to grow in the energy business.

Major activities causing the GHG emissions conducted by BPP are summarized as following:

Direct GHG Emissions (Scope 1) Indirect GHG Emissions (Scope 2)
  • Using natural gas, coal and waste gas from industrial factories, as well as activated carbons _ waste released from manufactories, used as fuels to generate power, steam, and heat.
  • Using diesels for igniting the boiler’s combustions, heavy equipment, substitute power generators, internal transport vehicles, etc.
  • Consuming minimum gasoline for vehicles.
  • Making use of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) for the air quality control system.
  • Using SF6 gases.
  • A purchase of electricity from external sources.

Management Approach

Since BPP operates a power and energy generation business, it directly consumes fuels for energy production. As a result, BPP mainly focuses on decreasing direct GHG emissions (Scope 1) released
from various fuel consumptions. BPP’s direct GHG emissions are accountable for 99% of its total GHG emissions since its operations are the upstream business, generating power and other energy supplied for industrial and residential consumptions.

BPP sees the opportunities and capabilities to reduce GHGs through improving energy utilization efficiency, lessening losses in the production process, and conducting a study on alternative fuels to achieve its GHG reduction target. In alignment with the Greener & Smarter strategy, BPP is also looking for chances to invest in renewable energy & technology businesses and smart power utilization. BPP closely keeps an eye on policy changes and assesses risks related to climate change in preparation for adapting itself to a transition of structures, policies and applicable laws in various countries. For example, employing a business continuity management system, assessing risks and opportunities related to changes in alignment with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), including defining the carbon pricing as part of its investment consideration in various projects.

BPP has established working groups to supervise climate change operations as following:


    • GHG emissions intensity (Scope 1 & 2) was 0.469 tonnes CO2e/MWh, down 30.6% when compared with the target set, and 25.7% lower than the year 2012 baseline.
      • Combined heat and power plant 0.511 tonnes CO2e/MWh
      • Gas-fired power plant 0.424 tonnes CO2e/MWh

    • An equity power generation capacity of 395 MWe from renewable energy generation capacity, representing 49.4% progress of the year 2025 target.
