CRC made simpler

Proposals to make the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme simpler, easier and more straightforward have been outlined.

The CRC scheme started in April last year to reduce carbon emissions in businesses through energy efficiency improvements. Following recent discussions with businesses, industry, other scheme participants and regulators the government’s new proposals will result in a CRC scheme which:

  • Is simpler, reducing administrative burden on businesses
  • Provides greater certainty to participants about how they comply with the CRC
  • Allows greater flexibility for businesses in how they take part
  • Reduces the overlap between the CRC and other government climate policies.
