Book Description


Whilst this publication can still be purchased some of the information in it has been superseded by more recent research and standards. The BRE Group does not accept any responsibility whatsoever for any loss or damage, including - without limitation - indirect or consequential loss or damage arising from use, or loss of use, of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the use of this document.

This Information Paper summarises the findings of BRE research to assess the feasibility of creating a funding mechanism for carbon reduction projects in the UK. It outlines the comprehensive framework for reporting of UK-based carbon reduction projects that BRE is proposing to develop. The research was commissioned by BRE Trust in response to strong demand from BRE clients to support UK-based carbon reduction projects instead of, or in addition to, traditional international carbon offsets. A full account of this research is published in a BRE Trust Report ’UK carbon reduction projects’.
