ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the changes made in the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme to avoid confusion for landlords and tenants in Great Britain. The amended carbon trading scheme does not require people and organizations to buy carbon credits between April 2010 and March 2011. Because it has no option to transfer responsibility for emission, landlords who are responsible for energy supply will also be responsible for emissions. The Environment Agency has published guidance on registration for the scheme.
