Obligations for carbon reduction and renewable energy strategy
The British government is currently the only one in the world that has committed to carbon reduction through primary legislation and public bodies are at the forefront of delivering on this commitment- the private sector not being far behind. Meeting carbon reduction and renewable energy targets and reporting requirements are likely to pose major challenges for public bodies, companies and third sector organisations alike.
