Hotels, venues face new carbon tax

Hotels and venues will have to pay an initial new tax of
£12 per tonne of carbon dioxide emitted yearly due to legislation which came
into effect 1 April this year.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change says the new
Feed-in Tariff will act as part of a new scheme which, if successful, will by
2020 reduce public and private sector emissions by at least 34 per cent of what
the levels were in 1990.

Under the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency
Scheme, registered participants will have their results published in a league
table.
