The objectives of this research were (1) to study activities that affect on carbon footprint emissions in warehouse, (2) to create a model for measuring the efficiency of carbon footprint emissions in warehouse activities, and (3) to develop guidelines for reduce carbon footprint in warehouse activities. This study was research and development by using qualitative research. In-depth Interview was used to collect data with 17 samples that obtained by purposive sampling, according to the criteria for determining and selecting experts. Descriptive data analysis and triangulation methods were used to analyze data. The results found that (1) warehouse activities include receiving, storing, picking, shipping, and delivering goods affects on carbon footprint emissions. However, effective management of these activities could reduce environmental impacts (2) a warehouse carbon footprint efficiency measurement model was created based on data from a study of warehouse activities and the measurement program of the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization, the model could assess the carbon footprint of each activity in warehouse by evaluating the total energy use (3) the guidelines for reducing carbon footprints in warehouse activities consist of using determine the source of carbon footprint emissions in warehouse processes and energy using that emits the highest to the lowest, direct and indirect of greenhouse gas emissions, as well as improving and developing transportation methods, using environmentally friendly materials and increasing efficiency in saving energy.
