CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme
The Carbon Reduction Commitment is a mandatory government scheme to cut carbon emissions by the largest energy consumers in the UK.
The UK trading scheme covers large business and public sector organisations who produce 12% of the total UK carbon emissions.
Large organisations and businesses will be subjected to report on and pay tax for all energy used. The CRC also produces a performance league table which ranks you against other organisations.
In March 2012, the Government revealed plans to simplify the Carbon Reduction Scheme. The proposed changes are expected to save businesses millions of pounds. The administrative costs for all participants of the scheme are set to be cut by almost two thirds, equating to almost £330 million of savings up to 2030.
"The benefits of the scheme are clear though. It will deliver substantial carbon savings helping us to meet carbon budgets, and it encourages businesses to take action to improve their energy efficiency", Secretary of State, Edward Davey.
