Housing: Carbon Emissions

Volume 489: debated on Friday 13 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what guidance she has given to local authorities on the calculation of baseline footprints for the Carbon Reduction Commitment. (262686)

I have been asked to reply.

On Thursday 12 March the Government published a consultation on the Draft Order to implement the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC). As part of the consultation package of documents, DECC published a user guide which includes guidance on how scheme participants might calculate the emissions baseline.

The baseline year for CRC is 1 April 2010-31 March 2011. Prior to the baseline period commencing, the scheme administrators will publish detailed guidance on how scheme participants should calculate their emission baseline.
