The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) is a mandatory scheme central to the UK’s strategy for improving energy efficiency and reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, as set out in the Climate Change Act 2008.

It has been designed and introduced to raise awareness, in large organisations, especially at senior level, of the importance of making energy usage reductions and it aims to encourage changes in both behaviour and infrastructure. By embracing the aims and objectives of this initiative it will become an integral part of your company's Carbon Reduction Programme thereby ensuring that you not only fulfil your mandatory obligations under the scheme but that you make improvements in your business processes.

The CRC scheme is split into phases. Each phase is a specified time period within which an organisation that qualifies for that phase must participate.

  1. Phase 1 started on 1st April 2010 and ran to 31st March 2014.
  2. Phase 2 is from 1st April 2014 to 31st March 2019.
  3. Thereafter there will be four further phases, each of five years, and a final phase of four years commencing in April 2039.

To offset the total emissions of carbon dioxide they report, each participant must purchase and surrender one allowance for each tonne of CO2. The allowance price of £12 introduced in 2011-12 remains unchanged through to 2013-14 but will rise to £16 in 2014-15, and from 2015-16 onwards will increase in line with RPI.

First Energy Solutions can undertake the role of CRC Administrator, taking care of all data gathering, report presentation and filing required to help you meet your obligations.

  • Creation and implementation of a robust governance process
  • Determining the potential financial impacts on your business
  • Ensuring that you meet every deadline and every obligation
  • Turning your statutory obligations into opportunities to reduce costs, reduce carbon and enhance external perceptions of your organisation
