CLIMATE CHANGE AGREEMENTS (CCA)
This voluntary scheme allows energy-intensive organisations to qualify for a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL) applied to their electricity and fuel bills in exchange for reducing their energy use and carbon dioxide emissions. It requires operators to continuously measure and report their energy consumption and CO2 emissions, with new targets for reduction set every two years, which can be a significant administrative burden for companies large or small.
