Policies & Issues: Environment

THE CARBON REDUCTION COMMITMENT
The BRC's members are fully supportive of energy efficiency legislation, but it must be policy that achieves its overall objectives whilst still enabling the retail sector to develop and grow in a highly competitive market. The Government's first piece of energy efficiency legislation, entitled the Carbon Reduction Commitment, will come into being on 1st April. A number of changes have been made to the scheme that enables retailers to participate in the scheme without detrimental impact to their business. However, one major flaw remains; the scheme can not be managed between landlords and tenants and still achieve the objective of energy efficiency. The BRC will continue to lobby Government to address this issue in the coming months and years.
