ABSTRACT
The author offers views on what could be the possible drawbacks of the British Department of Energy and Climate Change's Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) initiative in terms of the compliance measures that it requires among businesses in the country. He infers that most businesses would not pay much attention to the monitoring and recording schemes of the CRC since it is time-consuming and resource extensive. He also discussed his concerns about companies with no access to interest-free loans as incentive in reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
