Jones Lang LaSalle comment on Carbon Reduction Commitment


Yesterday (7th October), the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) published the official response to the Carbon Reduction Commitment consultation that took place earlier this year (now to be known as the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme).

 

Alex Edds, Associate Director in Jones Lang LaSalle’s Sustainability Services team, said: “This initiative is an important part of the energy management landscape.  Jones Lang LaSalle has attended several of the consultation workshops with DECC and sent a reply to the consultation in June.  Jones Lang LaSalle works closely with a number of clients affected by this legislation and has engaged closely with the British Property Federation to ensure that our shared concerns for the property sector were raised in the consultation response.”

 

Jones Lang LaSalle has produced a summary of the CRC headline changes for the property industry, which can be downloaded here

 

There are several significant changes for the property sector, including:

 

• More support for landlords from Government and a requirement for tenants to cooperate with landlord CRC obligations
• Slight adjustments to how organisational structures can report on the CRC
• Cancellation of the ‘double payment’ in the first year (April 2011)
• Changes to the League Table and Early Action Metric

The scheme is due to begin in April 2010, and companies affected should start taking steps to ensure a successful and proactive approach to the scheme.
