As of the 12th July, some 738 organisations had registered for the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme, and information declarations had been made by 254 non corporate organisations (public bodies) and 3167 corporate bodies.
Bearing in mind that the Environment Agency had originally estimated 6,000 bodies would fall under the scheme, and then revised this in April to some 12,000 - 15000 organisations, there still seems to be a lot of companies that have yet to register.
Registration closes on the 30th September 2010, and woe betide those companies who fail to register, as the documentation states "CRC is a mandatory scheme. Any organisation that does not comply with its legal obligations under CRC may face financial and other penalties. In addition, the Administrator will publish details of all organisations who have not complied with their obligations under the scheme"
So, seems to me that this is fairly clear, if you fail to register you may be fined and face other penalities and possible publication as being a "naughty" company.
I'm going to have a look at the registered participants/information declarations dataset and calculate how many IT companies are present on the list and report back.
It will be interesting to see how many companies are practising what they preach or not as the case may be.
