CRC study reveals greater action on energy and carbon

More than two-thirds of energy managers reported energy efficiency had increased compared to 2010, the first year of the CRC.

The single most important driver was rising energy prices, but the report notes that government carbon schemes, including the CRC, were also cited as drivers by more than half of all respondents.
