The CRC: One Year and Counting

The UK's Carbon Reduction Commitment comes into effect on April 1st, 2010. For the 5,000 companies and public bodies covered under this mandatory cap-and-trade scheme, the countdown clock starts now. For the 20,000 organisations with a half-hourly meter required to submit a CRC Information Disclosure, the clock starts now.

Carbon Clear is working to help companies understand the implications of the Carbon Reduction Commitment and position themselves for competitive advantage. We have been running CRC briefing workshops throughout Winter and Spring 2009 to help our clients prepare, and I'll be posting on this blog our upcoming article on the CRC, to be published in a forthcoming edition of "the environmentalist" journal. For those who can't wait, you can find our top-level overview here.

The CRC could have significant financial and reputational implications for your business. And the clock is ticking.
