With the awareness of world communities, guidelines to solve the global warming effect were created under the theme of “Low Carbon Society.”
SPRC encourages people to use natural resources wisely through various cultural development activities, including reducing usage of private cars, using environment-friendly materials, reducing pollution in the environment from activities, and others. This promotes reduction of energy consumption both directly and indirectly and leads to a sustainable Low Carbon Society.
