    CCA Climate Change Agreement

    Significant cost saving opportunities 

    The Climate Change Agreement, first established in 2001, is an innovative government initiative designed to reward eligible industrial sectors who make measurable changes in reducing carbon emissions with considerable discounts on their CCL charges.

    Qualifying companies that meet targets and other obligations under the scheme, will receive reduced CCL rates until the end of the current scheme which is set for March 2025. Participants will also see significant energy bill savings from the energy efficiency improvements they make towards these targets.

    The Government has temporarily reopened the CCA scheme for new applicants, with the cut-off date for new applications set for 31st March 2022 – although some trade associations have set their own earlier deadlines weeks ahead of this date.
