Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Scheme

What is the CRC Scheme?

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme was a mandatory carbon emissions reduction initiative that applied to large organisations in the public and private sectors in the UK for which we used to offer consultancy. It was implemented in 2010 to incentivise energy efficiency and cut emissions in large energy users in the UK.

The scheme required participants to measure and report their electricity and gas supplies on an annual basis to the CRC registry.

The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme is now closed and has made way for the Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) framework. SECR also builds on existing mandatory Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) reporting, the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), and EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS).

SECR will put green credentials into the public domain and could be seen as a mandatory task that has many benefits, including:

  • Elevating your business as a sustainable supplier
  • Improving staff retention and recruitment
  • Strengthening your organisation’s reputation
  • Helping you publicly contribute to a mass movement of change
