The article looks at the impact of lowering carbon emission for the air conditioning sector as a result of the implementation of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) scheme. It notes that related demands for reduction of energy consumption and running costs are also faced by manufacturers who are subject to the Climate Change Levy, a tax based on the carbon content of their fossil fuel consumption. Discussed are legislation and financial incentives designed to facilitate compliance with CRC.
