CRC may overlap the EU ETS
New report claims the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme may fail to cut carbon emissions and overlap other carbon reduction schemes.
The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) will raise money that will go to the government, rather than to those firms who cut their bills the most, as had been originally planned. Due to this the business group, CBI, is calling on the government to restore the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme to its previous structure, which provided incentives for carbon emissions reduction rather than a green tax.
