Operation of the GHG and Energy TMS

What is GHG & Energy Target Management?

The object of this system is to designate corporations that form 60% of national GHG emission and manage(set) the goals of GHG emission, saving energy, improving energy efficiency in order to achieve medium-term targets(30% reduction below 2020 BAU) according to Enactment of Framework Act on Low Carbon, Green Growth.

How to set the target?

The object of this system is to designate corporations that form 60% of national GHG emission and manage(set) the goals of GHG emission, saving energy, improving energy efficiency in order to achieve medium-term targets(30% reduction below 2020 BAU) according to Enactment of Framework Act on Low Carbon, Green Growth.

GHG Target Management Process

  • 1. Sectoral responsible organization : Relevant ministries -> Specify Controlled Entities (Jun.), Set Target (Sept.)
  • 2. Company (public organization, individual, corporate) -> Performance report submission (Mar.2013)
  • 3. Company (public organization, individual, corporate) -> Performance Plan submission (Dec.)
  • 4. Sectoral responsible organization : Relevant ministries -> X Behind of Performance Plan, Performance report submission (Mar.2013)
  • Ministry of Environment General Management Organization
  • GIR Support for successful system implementation and the operation of national GHG Inventory System
  • National GHG Inventory System Management of implementation progress and GHG information

Propulsion System

Relevant ministries set the annual target with consideration of new, additional facilities and potential reduction(Bottom-up) after the target of each sector and category of business is set(Top-down)
Relevant ministries continuously evaluate implementation plans and reports to manage goals of GHG reduction and energy saving.
  • 1st phase National Reduction Target
  • 2nd phase Sectoral Reduction Target
  • 3rd phase Type of business Reduction Target
  • 4th phase Set pre-target for business
  • 5th phase pre-target negotiation
  • 6th phase Renegotiation (on demand)
  • 7th phase final target set
