Carbon Reduction Commitment


Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC)

The Carbon Reduction Commitment - Energy Efficiency Scheme was introduced in 2008 and is the first piece of compulsory UK legislation to address energy use amongst medium to large non-energy intensive organisations.


Who is affected ?

Organisations will be affected if they: 

  • Own at least one settled half-hourly electricity meter
  • Have a total electricity consumption, through settled half-hourly electricity meters, of more than 6,000MWh


What do you need to do ?

Organisations that meet the above criteria will need to register with the CRC Registry. They will also need to:

  • Submit an annual report
  • Create and maintain a detailed evidence pack
  • Purchase and surrender carbon allowances to offset your carbon emissions
