Environmental policy - UK.

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme was the UK's first mandatory carbon trading scheme to address climate change and to promote energy saving.

It aimed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions not already covered by climate change agreements and the Emission Trading Scheme, by reducing the UK's carbon footprint and meeting the emissions reduction targets set out in the Climate Change Act of 2008.


It was formerly known as the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC).


The scheme was replaced in April 2019 by the UK's Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) regime.
