The article offers information on the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), the third major climate change instrument launched by the British government. It is intended to produce secure and cost-effective carbon savings from non-energy intensive businesses and public sector organisations. Particular focus is given to the duties of CRC organisations, as well as the process by which the CRC works. The role of the Scottish Environmental Protection Department and Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland in the regulation of CRC is also explained.
