Managing your Carbon Reduction Commitment
The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) is a mandatory emission trading scheme placing several large energy monitoring and reporting burdens on organisations.
As announced in the 2016 Budget, the CRC scheme will run until the end of the 2018-19 compliance year, when phase 2 concludes.
Organisations that are mandated to participate must monitor and record emissions, and purchase allowances for each tonne of CO2 emitted from energy use.
The rules are complex and the reporting burden is significant. Many organisations have therefore failed to meet the requirements, which can lead to fines and civil penalties.
“It is great knowing that Envantage cover all aspects of the CRC scheme for me, always on time, always professional and always accurate! And always willing to help, thank you. “
