The Government will publish a league table based on performance, with all revenue from purchased allowances going back to the organisations. The reward scheme in place will see the best placed organisations in the table receive the most revenue back, encouraging organisations to do all they can to cut their emissions.
Under control of the Department for Energy and Climate Change, the scheme aims to help improve efficiency, save companies money as a result, and reduce national CO2 emissions. In order to meet the 80% reduction in CO2 target by 2050, organisations are now under increasing pressure to reduce the environmentally degrading impact that comes from many day-to-day operations.
"Commuting and business travel is included under Scope 3 of the CRC," said Liftshare's MD, Ali Clabburn, "and any organisation with significant business mileage would be wise to introduce car-sharing as a quick win - both environmental and financial."
