Businesses need to prepare for Carbon Reduction Commitment

Businesses need to prepare for Carbon Reduction Commitment
Organisations need to be prepared to comply with legislation which will oblige them to reduce their carbon emissions and boost their energy efficiency, according to the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).

Following the launch of a guide to prepare organisations which have energy bills of over £1 million for compliance with the Carbon Reduction Commitment, the CBI claimed many businesses were not prepared.

Dr Neil Bentley, CBI director of business environment said: "From next April all firms with an energy bill of more than a million pounds a year will be expected to comply with new legislation to reduce carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency.

"However, many companies remain unaware and unprepared for what the Government's Carbon Reduction Commitment will involve, and are in for a real shock when these changes become law."

The new commitment will save businesses £1 billion by 2020, according to the Department for Energy and Climate Change.
