Council carbon

ANGUS Council is the fifth best authority in Scotland in reducing its carbon footprint.

The council is a participant in the UK Government’s Carbon Reduc-tion Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC).

The CRC scheme league tables for 2010/11, the first year of the scheme, have been published.

They are based on actions that participants have taken to show they are committed to energy efficiency in their organisations.

The tables also reveal that Angus is 17th out of a total of 186 UK participating local authorities.
