CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme is the United Kingdom's mandate to reduce greenhouse gases by reducing energy use at private and public organisations. It establishes financial incentives for reducing energy use and sets a cap on allowed energy use. 

Through the CRC, the United Kingdom is aiming for a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2020, as compared to the levels recorded in 1990.
