ENDS is pleased to announce three new special reports - indispensible holiday reading for environmental professionals:

* The Carbon Reduction Commitment: our 3rd special report on this complex and controversial energy saving scheme focuses on the prospects for further changes to the rules in 2011 and includes a first glimpse of numbers of organisations in different sectors that have registered as full participants.

* Carbon Offsets 2010: ENDS' third annual report on voluntary carbon offsetting looks at how the sector is weathering the economic storm. After its pre-launch at the Carbon Show in October the full report is now available online.
