One in five businesses may have got CRC wrong

One in five businesses registered for the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC)
scheme may have given the wrong information, according to research.

The scheme, which had a deadline of yesterday (September 30) to sign up to,
has already been branded 'too complex' by the Committee on Climate Change. Energy firm npower has polled 100 UK financial directors revealing 23% found
the process confusing. Another 24% also reported issues with compiling data from multiple sites
across their business, and one in 10 didn't fully understand what was
required of them to complete registration. Head of business energy services at
npower, Dave Lewis, said: "If collecting the required information together
was problematic, then going forward, many may well find the ongoing
obligations of the scheme equally challenging.
