- Scope 1 Emissions (tonne CO2e) is the GHG emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by the port.

- Carbon Intensity (kg CO2e/TEU), is the total of Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG Emissions divided by the port’s annual throughput.
- The emission factors applied for the calculation of Scope 1 are adopted from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (UK).

Along with the Net-Zero roadmap of Hutchison Ports, MITT develops its Environmental Management Plan in which a regular monitoring process to environmental impact against business models is committed. Myanmar Koei International, an environmental specialist consultation company, conducts technical measurement of environmental data on terminal premises and submits reports to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation (MONREC) bi-annually. On submission of environmentally friendly reports, MITT had been issued with the Environmental Compliance Certificate by MONREC, the first terminal to have obtained this certificate in Myanmar.
TREE PLANTING AND GREEN TALKS
As a green initiative, Hutchison Ports MITT held a "Tree Planting Ceremony and Green Talks" on 4 Aug 2023. Aiming to enhance awareness and knowledge on climate change, we invited customers, shipping line staff and contractors to join these events. Together we happily planted 320 plants within our terminal premises.
