Reducing carbon crucial says MSP

Proposals to simplify the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) will deliver significant emissions reductions in large commercial and public sector organisations.

CRC is a key part of Scotland’s climate change policy. It is helping business across the country to reduce carbon emissions, contributing to ambitious climate change targets by incentivising energy efficiency in the commercial and public sectors.

Minister for Environment and Climate Change Stewart Stevenson said: “The Carbon Reduction Commitment scheme is stimulating the market for new low carbon goods and service industries - playing a key part in our efforts to tackle climate change and reduce emissions - and laying the foundations for a low carbon economy.

“. . . The Carbon Reduction Commitment is driving innovation and action in the business community. . .”
