The article offers information on the government energy-efficiency scheme in Great Britain which employs a carrot-and-stick approach in mitigating carbon emissions. The scheme is known as the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) and is developed by the Environment Agency. Moreover, main objective of the CRC scheme is to encourage organisation not belonging in the European Union's Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) to become more energy efficient by means of registration.
