Companies requiring business energy deals need to be incentivised to join in the government's energy efficiency scheme.
This is the view of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), which warned that the removal of the revenue recycling element of the Carbon Reduction Commitment has made the programme "untenable in its current form".
Rhian Kelly, director for business environment at the organisation, commented: "We now have a carbon reduction scheme that doesn't encourage companies to reduce carbon emissions, and actually adds to the cost of doing business.
"Without a proper incentive the scheme lacks credibility and has lost businesses' trust," he argued, adding that policy uncertainty undermines companies' long-term energy efficiency plans and could disrupt emission-cutting goals.
Meanwhile, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has launched an online tool for companies that have explored ways in which to save cheap electricity waste in the workplace and want to know how to prepare for climate change.
