New Carbon Tax for UK Hotels


The outgoing UK government has received Royal Assent for the new 2010 Energy Act and it has been enacted into law that means that UK hotels and high energy users will have to pay extra for CO2 carbon emissions. The new charge started on 1st April and all companies will be audited to see how much they emit. The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has put in place the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme which is designed to help large companies to cut their carbon emissions. www.decc.gov.uk
