Bodies that miss CRC deadline 'will not be named and shamed'

The Environment Agency has said it will not 'name and shame' organisations
that fail to sign up to its Carbon Reduction Commitment emissions trading
scheme in time for tomorrow's deadline.
The announcement came after the Treasury today became the last central
government department to sign up to the CRC on the final day of
registration. All Whitehall ministries were required to take part under the
terms of the scheme.

The CRC, set up by the Department for Energy and Climate Change and run by
the Environment Agency, is expected to involve around 5,000 large
organisations from the private, voluntary and public sectors.

An Environment Agency spokeswoman told Public Finance this afternoon: 'We
will not be naming and shaming people - we want to work with businesses and
public sector organisations. 'If they have not registered yet, we will be finding out why, but we will
not be putting their names into the public domain.'
