Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme
The Scheme encourages organisa-tions to develop energy management strategies that promote a better understanding of energy usage. It provides a financial incentive to reduce energy use by putting a price on carbon emissions from such use and also allows participants to make savings on energy bills through improved energy efficiency. In CRC, organisations buy allowances equal to their annual emissions.
The scheme is administered by the Environment Agency, which publishes details of all participants' emissions each year.
