Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation
Climate change mitigation consists of actions to limit the magnitude or rate of global warming and its related effects. This generally involves reductions in human emissions of greenhouse gases and decreasing other impactors on climate. Ultimately global consumption beyond a sustainable level has negative impacts and it is this balance of need and consumption that, ultimately, will lead to a sustainable future.
EcoThailand advises and encourages individuals businesses and organisations to minimize their Global Impacts … through decreased consumption, less impactful use of resources and recycling of used materials.
We take an holistic and practical approach believing that a multi-faceted step wise and gradual change in the Thai Gulf is more likely to yield positive results in the longer term.
recognizing that climate change will occur in spite of mitigation works, climate adaptation is becoming increasingly important as a planning objective for the Thai Gulf.
Our projects include Environmental Guardianship teaching of school children, (todays kids are the leaders of tomorrow), we sponsor and are local organizers of the Government TGO Low Emission Support Scheme (LESS) which is designed to decrease carbon footprints of businesses, communities and organizations via recycling. We are an organizer of the Phangan Island multi-group ‘World Cleanup Day’ annual event, supporters of beach and inland cleanup volunteer groups, local recycling businesses and advisors for environmental building design, all of which provide numerous small steps towards a ‘greener’, more sustainable lifestyle and community. Our climate change mitigations also incorporate our Bio Waste Management and Eco and Low Carbon Tourism projects.
Building on the concept of the LESS scheme to incorporate broader aspects of climate change mitigation and environmental sustainable practices (upcycling, water conservation, low environmental impact lifestyles, etc) we embrace within our ‘Sustainable Island Certification’ scheme (see below to read more …)
Should your business, school or group wish to enroll in the EcoThailand sponsored TGO Low Emission Support Scheme, our ‘Sustainable Island Scheme’, or any other of our activities, please Contact Us for more details.

The LESS scheme run by EcoThailand Foundation links in with our Bio Waste Managment and Eco and Low Carbon and Carbon Neutral tourism projects forming a comprehensive broad climate change mitigation strategy for the Gulf Islands.
During 2022 our participants, working in both carbon offset energy usage and recycling, succeeded in considerable reductions in their carbon emissions – think globally, act locally …
