ABSTRACT
The author asserts that scrapping the British Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) will create more problems than it will solve. According to the author, scrapping the CRC will result in carbon reduction efforts losing impetus. This loss, he asserts, can be mitigated by mandatory carbon reporting, but since it will only apply to listed companies, this type of reporting's persuasive power will not be as strong as a publicly available performance league table.
