Nearly 100 local authorities have not signed up to the obligatory Carbon
Reduction Commitment (CRC), according to consultants WSP Environmental.
small-scale companies may not meet the deadline for the CRC and face
thousands of pounds in fines. Reports had already appeared that the end of September deadline would be
missed by some of the 5-6,000 large companies and government bodies. Now, though, WSP has told the Daily Telegraph that even with a last minute
‘rush’ in registration only 3,000 large companies will have signed up. Also, only 9,500 out of 15,000 small companies will be ready. http://www.localgov.co.uk/index.cfm?method=news.detail&id=91881
