ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the significant role of the Carbon Trust in meeting the target of the British government in reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 2010. In 2006/07, the trust used funding from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and additional funding from the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform and the devolved administrations. According to the British National Audit Office (NAO), the trust's support for so-called emerging technologies has encouraged the private sector to invest on the trust.
