Now that the registration period for the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC EES) has passed, participating organisations have to get to grips with the complexity of managing it. That means gathering all sorts of energy consumption data from lots of different places – bearing in mind these are big outfits, usually with lots of sites.

Once they’ve got all the data they then have to pull it together, analyse, verify its accuracy and product reports.

So it’s not surprising that many of these public and private sector organisations are finding CRC compliance a real hassle. Which is a shame, because this should be seen as a great opportunity not only to reduce environmental impact but also to reduce costs. Using energy is expensive, so cutting energy consumption is a financial saving.

All of which means that anything that takes the hassle out of CRC compliance has to be a good thing, and an example of this is the new CRC module in the Sustainability iQ sustainability management system from Causeway.

It’s a very nifty module that can make a real difference to how an organisation manages the CRC and therefore how it manages its sustainability.
