Climate Change Agreements

Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) are voluntary agreements which offer energy-intensive sectors the chance to receive up to 90% reduction in the Climate Change Levy.

The agreements are intended to reduce industry’s energy use and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. An organisation with a CCA will measure and report its energy use, business activity levels and carbon emissions against agreed targets over five, two-year target periods.

In return for signing up, participating sectors receive a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL), of up to 90% on electricity bills and 65% on other fuels.

Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) are available for major energy-intensive processes such as aerospace, cement making and supermarkets to printing works, sawmills and agriculture.

esave can help identify the relevant sector CCA for your organisation, calculate the costs and benefits of joining, gather the registration evidence pack and make the application to join the CCA.

We can also manage the regular reporting program (as required by the industry sector CCA holder) and provide you with advice and guidance on meeting the next energy reduction target.
