The government Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Saving Scheme is sure to have a positive impact on business energy use, it has been argued.
According to the Environmental Industries Commission (EIC), the initiative, which came into force at the beginning of April, will benefit businesses of all shapes and sizes and will promote business energy efficiency throughout the whole of British industry.
Speaking at the Sustainabilitylive! Event at the NEC in Birmingham, Adrian Wilkes, founder of the EIC, stressed that energy efficiency is such an obvious and important issue for both individual households and businesses to be addressing.
"The problem up until recently is that the price of energy has been so low and of course, does not include any price for pollution," he said.
"So pollution regulations will be good for the environmental solutions industry and good for the rest of industry, because businesses will become more efficient."
The CRC scheme came into force on April 1st 2010 and requires all large public and private sector organisations to sign up to a mandatory scheme that aims to improve energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.
