Manchester United Tops CRC Performance League Table while Virgin Atlantic is amongst worst performers.
The Environment Agency has published its first Carbon Reduction Commitment Performance League Table (CRC League Table) ranking 2,000 registered organisations on how they manage their business electricity usage and carbon emissions. According to EA’s data more than 60% of the registered companies have installed smart meters or gained good energy management and Carbon Trust accreditation.
2010-2011 CRC League Table
Out of the 2,000 organisations 22 ranked joint first with a weighted score of 202.95 while 800 organisations ranked in the lowest possible position of the CRC League Table with a weighted score of 402.
At the top highlights to Red Football Limited, popularly known as Manchester United, energy regulator OFGEM, UBS, British American Tabacco and the Department of Energy & Climate Change.
On the opposite side of the table there are well known organisations that failed to improve their business energy efficiency or cut down on their carbon emissions. They include Centrica, Virgin Atlantic, Peugeot, the Zoological Society and London and Zurich Financial Services.
The Environment Agency did not disclose information on those organisations that failed to comply with the legislation and will now face fines starting from £45,000.
How the PLT is compiled
The Performance League Table (PLT) ranks the relative performance of the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme participant against the three weighted metrics: Early Action Metric, Absolute Metric and Growth Metric. Participants with the same weighted score are sorted alphabetically.
Weighted Score – The sum of the score for each metric multiplied by the weighting for that metric. The weighting applied to each metric is dependent on the compliance year to which the Performance League Table relates. The higher the score the better the ranking in the PLT.
Emissions (Tonnes of CO2) – Your “CRC Emissions”. These are the CO2 emissions associated with the CRC supplies of a participant for an annual reporting year.
Early Action Metric (%) – The average percentage of i) the proportion of non-mandatory CRC electricity or gas supplies which are measured through voluntarily installed “automatic meter reading” meters or dynamic supply in year 1 and ii) CRC emission coverage by the Carbon Trust Standard or equivalent.
Absolute Emissions Metric (%) – The percentage change in the CRC Emissions of a participant (not applicable for the first reporting year).
Growth Metric (%) – The percentage change in CRC Emissions per unit turnover or revenue expenditure for an annual reporting year (not applicable for the first reporting year).
