CRC organisations are responsible for around 10% of the UKâs CO2 emissions. The carbon footprint of these organisations in the fiscal year 2010/11 amounted to 61 MtCO2.
The scheme features a range of reputational, behavioural and financial drivers, which aim to encourage organisations to develop energy management strategies that promote a better understanding of energy usage.
The first sale of allowances to cover emissions in fiscal year 2011/12 will be taking place in 2012. The price of CRC allowances was set at Â£12 per tonne of carbon dioxide.
