The Carbon Reduction Commitment – Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC)
was introduced in 2010 and is the first piece of compulsory UK legislation to
address energy use amongst medium to large non-energy
intensive organisations. It aims to reduce CO2 emissions from these types
of organisations by at least 4 million tonnes by 2020.
