The UK’s only Accredited Greenhouse Gas Certification Scheme
With environmental concerns climbing the agenda for all kinds of legislative bodies, companies need a way of showing the world that they work sustainably. The Carbon Reduce (powered by Toitū) scheme, (formally CEMARS) certification is the perfect way to do it – and we can help achieve this globally recognised standard. In 2019, the UK government announced its plans to simplify energy and carbon reporting with the new Streamlined Energy Carbon Reporting (SECR) framework. The previous CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme ended in April 2019 as the government moves towards helping companies to improve energy productivity by 20% by 2030.
