ARE YOU HITTING YOUR CARBON REDUCTION TARGETS?
The need to manage carbon emissions is becoming more pressing than ever.
New climate change legislation passed in the UK in late 2008 and more recently in April 2010 has increased the pressure for organisations to tackle their carbon emissions.
Do you know about the Carbon Reduction Commitment. The CRC:
helps to reduce the UK's carbon footprint
incentivises improvements in energy efficiencies
creates cost savings for your organisation
implements a new duty to mitigate climate change
introduces a UK mandatory cap and carbon trading scheme
WHAT DOES THE CRC MEAN FOR YOUR ORGANISATION?
If you consume more than 6,000 megawatt hours of energy each year then your organisation must comply with new energy regulations or risk being fined thousands of pounds.
Even if you are not a large organisation who by law has to comply with the CRC, effective carbon management still makes good business sense as it can cut your costs dramatically and bring many other business benefits.
Speak to your Brookvex ECO Advisor about how your organisation should plan and implement a carbon reduction programme and about the no upfront investment grants and loans available to help you achieve this.
A Brookvex ECO Advisor will:
Identify - the key emissions sources
Set a Timeline - an appropriate baseline period against which to measure emissions reductions
Set Targets - working with you to set emissions reductions targets
Develop an Action Plan and assist with implementation to meet the targets
Consult - working with your team, Brookvex will advise on the most effective ways to reduce energy consumption and emissions and will advise on grants and loans available to you where possible that do not require capital expenditure.
Brookvex can also assist on your Carbon Offset Policy - for those emissions that cannot be reduced, it might be necessary to buy carbon offsets as pat of the overall carbon management policy.
Act ECO today, it is now a critical business need for all companies to have a carbon management strategy in place.
