The second scope was indirect GHGs emission from electricity consumption and the third scope was other indirect GHGs emissions. The study revealed that the Huachiew Chalermprakiet University had emitted CO2e by 4,640 ton a-1. The highest emission scope was the electricity consumption which contributed to 65.37 % of the total GHGs emission of the campus. The GHGs emission per capita in the campus was 0.421 ton CO2e capita-1 a-1.
