There is now political, economic and social consensus that human activity is resulting in rising levels of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the leading cause of climate change. Governments, business community and the general public need to act now to mitigate and adapt to the challenges ahead.
It is clear from the raft of EU Directives on Emissions Trading Scheme, Pollution Control, Renewable Energy, Cogeneration, Energy-Using Products, the Energy Performance of Buildings and Energy Services that it's not business as usual. For instance, The UK Climate Change Act 2008 has set legally binding targets for reducing carbon emissions by 80 per cent on 1990 levels by 2050. It has been the catalyst in driving new policies in carbon reduction such as, Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme for non - energy intensive businesses and public sector organisations, Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) on energy suppliers to improve household energy efficiency, the Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) with industry, Zero Carbon Schools Programme and the Zero Carbon Homes initiative. Carbon Point not only understands the pressures organisation are facing but has worked with many public and private sector clients to design policies, strategies and initiatives for compliance.
Making sense of the policies and ensuring compliance with legislation can be difficult without the right set of skills, knowledge and experience. Carbon Point has the right mix of capabilities to advise, guide and support clients. We can help design, formulate and implement solutions to achieve compliance, secure and enhance business competitiveness and maintain customer confidence.
