In response to the global warming crisis, the Kyoto protocol was established by major developed countries in 1997. The Paris Agreement, which imposes a carbon reduction obligation for both developed countries and developing countries, was signed in 2015. Regulations and efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions accordingly have been implemented. In this study, we analyzed the reduction of carbon emissions computerizing of the traditional project management system for efficient railway construction at Korea Rail Network Authority. We suggest a model that measures two major effects of carbon reduction, stemming from transportation and from a decrease of paper use. In this paper, we calculate the amount of carbon reduction and the economic effect of carbon reduction with application of the construction project management system at Korea Rail Network Authority. The model and methodology in this study are expected to be helpful to measure the carbon reduction performance for similar e-transformation.
