Legislation, what is coming next?

The European Union as well as several US States and many countries around the world have enacted environmental regulations that apply to IT products.

This year (2010) UK will introduce the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC):

  • the top 5000 companies in the UK will be required to “footprint” energy use
  • Mandatory reporting of Carbon Emissions
  • Carbon credits will beed to be purchased for all emmisions


  • Carbon caps will be introduced in 2012
  • Big financial incentives for improved efficiency
  • Fines and criminal penalties for non-reporting

From Copenhagen in December last year we had a number of clear directional statements from leading coutries including the US, UK and China.  We believe this will lead to:

  • Deeper UK Government commitment to addressing climate change and mandatory compliance
  • Global commitments next year from all major countries including US, China and India
  • More evidence of green credentials between companies trading internationally

The UN predict that Carbon Emissions will become the most traded commodity on the planet.
