Carbon Reduction Commitment articles

Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) - The CRC is the primary carbon management policy affecting the UK's largest firms. It requires large energy users to measure and report on their energy use and pay a levy based on their related greenhouse gas emissions. Intended as a means to incentivise firms to improve their energy efficiency it has been criticised by some business groups as a "stealth tax".
