Abstract

The main driver of global warming is the greenhouse gases emission. The most important greenhouse gas is Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Greenhouse gases can be generated from daily human activities such as the use of electrical energy, the use of motor vehicles, and food consumption. The higher education of UIN Sunan Ampel Surabaya, plays an important role in improving the quality of human resources and the environment. In addition, the role of students and lecturers as agents of change requires them to be able to recognize and calculate their carbon emissions as part of efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The objective of this study was to investigate personal carbon emissions of students and lecturers of UIN Sunan Ampel Surabaya during new normal Covid-19 transition period. We used a quantitative descriptive approach as the method of study. Daily students and lecturers’ activities were obtained by questioner. The carbon emission calculation based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The study revealed that the total personal students and lecturers carbon emission were 1.416,17 Kg CO2-eq/year and 2.491, 19 Kg CO2-eq/year respectively. UIN Sunan Ampel Surabaya as higher education institutions should be proposed carbon management in order to reduce personal carbon emission.
