CRC Latest Update 20th October 2010

Eco-Smart Consultancy keeps all it's clients up to date with environmental legislation.

The treasury has announced the rules for participants within the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme have now changed. Participating organisations will no longer recieve money back via the league tables and the money raised by purchasing allowances will instead will go to the treasury, these charges however have now been delayed by a year to start in 2012.

As previuosly stated allowances will cost 12 pounds per ton of carbon dioxide to start, and the Treasury said it assumed the cost will rise to 16 pounds a ton starting in the tax year ending in 2014.

This means for large private and public sector organisations the initial cost of CRC will increase dramatically, therfore only way of offsetting these additional costs is to save money via resource efficiency or waste minimisation programmes.
