Carbon Reduction Commitment
The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), which starts in April 2010, aims to improve carbon efficiency and reduce the level of CO2 emissions generated by commercial and public sector organisations and infrastructure in the UK.
The Government estimates that the CRC sector represents 10% of the UK’s CO2 emissions (51 million tonnes annually) and by 2020 expects to achieve an annual saving of 4.4 million tonnes of CO2 through the scheme. Organisations in the scheme must record energy use very carefully and are incentivised to make energy savings through a CRC league table which will pay bonuses to the best performers but penalise the worst.
