Environment Agency consolidates CRC guidance

20 April 2012

On Tuesday the Environment Agency published its CRC Manual to assist participants in complying with the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme Order 2010 (the “Scheme”). This has consolidated over 30 existing guidance documents into one point of reference.

No substantive change has been made to guidance previously available. However, areas where participants have complained of unclear wording have been clarified.

The success of the Scheme is vital if the UK is to meet its reduction targets for carbon emissions. Opponents of the Scheme say it is unduly complicated and creates an unfair burden on business.

Hopefully this consolidated guidance will make the requirements of the Scheme easier to understand so business can concentrate on what the CRC is really about; the reducing of carbon emissions.
