Benchmarking Energy & GHG Intensity in Thailand's Metal Industry

This technical assistance advances the following Sustainable Development Goals:
Industry, innovation and infrastructure
Climate action

This Technology Transfer Advances Thailand's


Thailand's Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) aim to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 7-20 % by 2020. The iron and steel industry is the largest energy consuming industry, and one of the most prevalent sources of GHGs emissions. Thailand would like to study the baseline of energy consumption and GHG emissions among other countries as a benchmark to support Thailand's NAMA implementation.
