Many UK Firms Likely to Miss Carbon Registration Deadline


Reuters reports that an environmental consulting firm has concluded about 40% of the British firms that are supposed to register for the UK's new Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRCEES) don't even know they have an obligation to do so and are likely to miss the September 30 registration deadline.

The CRCEES launched on April 1 and affects approximately 20,000 U.K. businesses, including banks, hotels, and schools, as well as industries. This blog noted before the launch that the UK program can be complicated despite efforts to make it simple. The Users Guide (PDF) published by the UK Environment Agency tries to explain the program, including who must register, but apparently figuring it out isn't as easy as designers might have hoped.
