Become More Cost Efficient with TEAM's Carbon Reduction Commitment Service

Become More Cost Efficient with TEAM's Carbon Reduction

Six businesses have been fined more than £41,000 this year for breaching their Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), according to the Environment Agency (EA).

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme is a mandatory carbon emissions reduction initiative that applies to large organisations in the public and private sectors in the UK.

The scheme requires participants to measure and report their electricity and gas supplies on an annual basis to the CRC registry, which calculates emissions in tonnes of CO2.

But according to the Environment Agency, six firms failed to submit an annual report for the 2014/15 compliance year by the 31st July deadline.

How does the Carbon Reduction Commitment Scheme work?

With this in mind, TEAM's CRC Industry Expert, Abigail Basketter, explains how businesses could comply with CRC more cost-effectively and reduce the risk of fines.

For many, the CRC scheme rules are complex and the reporting burden is significant. Some organisations have therefore failed to meet the requirements, which has led to fines and civil penalties.

Organisations will also report under the current CRC phase for the last time by the end of July 2019 and surrender allowances for emissions from energy supplied in the 2018-19 compliance year by the end of October 2019.

The CRC Scheme aims to incentivise energy efficiency and cut emissions in large energy users in the UK's public and private sectors. That includes supermarkets, water firms, local authorities, NHS trusts and all central government departments.

These organisations must monitor and record emissions and purchase allowances for each tonne of CO₂ emitted from energy use.

In the current phase, participants have the option of buying allowances in advance in the lower price ‘forecast sale’ at the start of a compliance year, or in a higher price ‘compliance sale’ after the end of the year.

How to make the Carbon Reduction Commitment process easier?

There’s no doubt that the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme takes up a lot of time.

Participants in CRC are required to complete Annual Report submissions (to a deadline), maintain an auditable CRC Evidence Pack and pay for CRC emissions (to deadlines).

Many businesses don't want to get too involved with the ins and outs of the scheme’s processes because the current phase ends in 2019 and the future of the scheme is unknown. Nevertheless, they still have a legal obligation to comply.

Please Note: In relation to TEAM’s assistance in this process, we would need any forecast data as soon as possible, if businesses wanted assistance on estimating the number of allowances to order in April. With regards to assistance with the reporting process we would suggest getting data to us by the end of May to allow time to review the data and establish the number of buy-to-comply allowances, that may be needed.

TEAM consistently produces energy savings that exceed the cost of our services and products. Founded in 1985 by Managing Director Paul Martin, TEAM has customers from all sectors including Commerce, Industry and Government.
