Are Government's carbon reduction targets realistic?

Are the Government's current energy reductions strategies doing enough to reduce the UK's carbon footprint?

Total Environmental Management (TEM), consultants responsible for energy management at the 02 Arena, is conducting a survey covering opinions of UK businesses on a range of energy related issues.

TEM's short survey seeks to identify if UK businesses believe the Government's carbon reduction targets are achievable or not.

Results of the survey, which can be viewed here, will be published on's energy channel later this year.

TEM's operations director, Tracy Lewis, said: "There's positive talk about sustainability and reducing the amount of energy used within buildings through the introduction of renewable technology and behavioural change, but it is not always possible.

"We are very interested in finding out the views of UK businesses to understand how they see the situation and how their businesses have been affected by changes to legislation."

The survey will also look at the changes in the CRC and how it may have affected participants' approach of the legislation, the level of interest in renewable technology and whether landlords are able to influence tenants' energy usage behaviour.

The survey will be accepted up to April 8.
