In a recent study on a modular housing project it was revealed that there were 90% fewer vehicle deliveries than would be expected on a comparable traditional build. Elements Europe is fully supporting The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), an innovative climate change and energy saving scheme for the UK. It will encourage improvements in energy efficiency. The scheme has been designed to generate a shift in awareness in large organisations. The scheme is also a central part of the UK’s strategy for controlling our carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. It will tackle CO2 emissions not already covered by Climate Change Agreements and the EU Emissions Trading System.
This will help reduce the country’s carbon footprint to deliver the ambitious emissions reduction targets set in the Government’s Climate Change Act. The scheme is a UK-wide scheme. Policy has been developed in partnership by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Assembly Government and the Department of Environment Northern Ireland. Overall the scheme will achieve emissions reductions of at least 4MtCO2 per year by 2020.
