Your obligation under CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.
First of all you need to have determined if you qualify or not...
If you do, you must:
- Register as a participant on the CRC website.
- Provide information regarding your annual emissions, excluding exemptions such as domestic accounts, fuel used for transport and NHH un-metered supplies.
- Purchase sufficient allowances for your projected emissions for 2012 to 2013. This is a change from the original scheme and is a result of the Government Spending Review.
- Surrender sufficient allowances to cover your actual emissions.
- Keep and update associated CRC reports.
If you don’t, you may still need to:
- Register as a non-participating member of CRC on the CRC website, if you have HH settled supplies below 6GWh during the qualification period.
- Produce an emission statement, if you consumption is greater than 3GWh and below 6GWh during the qualification period.
How will CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme Affect my Business?
Whilst CRC is designed to stimulate carbon reduction it also plays on two elements that are essential to everyday business life. Finance and Reputation.
By publishing participant’s position within the league table, everyone will be able to see how a company has performed. Financial pressures will come from the need to purchase allowances, which will no long be recycled to participants.
As well as the nuts and bolts of the scheme there are various fines that could be levied depending upon given infringement. These cover such instances as:
- Non registration.
- Failure to maintain records.
- Incorrect reporting.
You can find a comprehensive explanation in the Users Guide in our CRC Library.
Not only will a company be subject to financial penalties finishing towards the bottom of the table, they will be viewed as not playing their part in CO2 reduction. The impact on this could be loss of orders from consumers who make environmental considerations when purchasing.
