Green Power Conferences announces the Carbon Reduction Commitment Summit, taking place June 1-2 at The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London

Oct. 14 /CSRwire/ - LONDON - October 13, 2008 - Around 5,000 organisations operating in the UK will soon be participating in the country's first mandatory carbon trading scheme: The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC). The CRC targets emissions from large non-energy intensive business and public sector organisations from a variety of sectors. This is the qualifying year for CRC participating with the first phase of the scheme to commence in 2010.
2009 will be a critical year for organisations to prepare and budget for CRC compliance. With that in mind, Green Power Conferences is pleased to announce its second annual Defra-supported event: The Carbon Reduction Commitment Summit. The Summit, which includes an Energy Efficiency Exhibition, will take place June 1-2, 2009 at The Queen Elizabeth 11 Conference Centre in London.

The Carbon Reduction Commitment Summit is designed to help those managing CRC compliance define their new carbon management strategy, delegate responsibilities internally, budget for CRC participation and identify cost-savings solutions. By providing case studies from Defra experts, energy providers and CRC participants, this event will offer practical advice on CRC compliance and the latest updates on energy efficiency and carbon management strategies.

With a financial and reputational price on carbon now imminent, it is important for organisations to ensure they are properly prepared for the CRC. Scheme participants will need management’s approval for purchasing CRC allowances so it is important to review your carbon reduction plans today. Through presentations and expert panels, this event will offer the best practical advice on how organisations can achieve CRC compliance efficiently and economically.
