The new format of the Environment Agency’s annual reports covering participants’ emissions under the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) was revealed on 3 October.
These will no longer rank participants by performance in terms of total annual carbon emissions, emissions intensity and early actions such as half-hourly meter installation and certification under the Carbon Trust Standard.
The agency no longer has to publish performance assessments (ENDS Report 458, p29). Instead, from 2012/13 onwards it will publish a document known as the CRC Annual Report Information (ARI). The first is expected in November. For each participant, ARIs will include six quantitative metrics.
