UK government releases first CRC league table

But critics say table does not provide an accurate view of how much energy is “wasted”, or reflect past efforts on efficiency.

However, given we’re the only carbon brokers in the Middle East we’ve decided to exhibit at the Motor Show to highlight the environmental issues and raise people’s awareness as much anything else. The UAE has one of the highest per capita CO2 emission rates in the world and cars are responsible for huge part of this with over a million vehicles registered in Dubai alone.”
