  • The scheme started in April 2010 and is regulated by the Environment Agency.
  • It is central to the UK’s strategy for improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 by at least 80% compared with emissions in 1990, as set out in the Climate Change Act 2008
  • It will affect large organisations in the private and public sectors, especially at senior level, and aims to encourage changes in behaviour and infrastructure.
