Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) are part of a package of government measures to tackle climate change that are designed to encourage UK business to save energy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
Jacobs work with select Trade Associations in operating and administrating the Climate Change Agreements on behalf of those Associations.
What are Climate Change Agreements (CCAs)?
CCAs are voluntary agreements which detail targets for eligible industry sectors (trade associations) to increase energy efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Operators who hold a CCA are eligible to claim a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL) charged on their energy bills.
Previously, the 'Old' CCA Scheme ran from 2001 to 31st March 2013; however, the new CCA scheme started on 1 April 2013 and will run until 31st December 2023.
Why have a CCA?
The benefits of having a CCA and partaking in the Climate Change Levy Discount Scheme result in up to 90% discount on electricity and up to 65% on gas, coal and LPG on the CCL charged in return for meeting energy or carbon saving targets.
This website offers Trade Associations registered under the Scheme useful information by the way of training programmes available, timetable of activities, administration forms, association information sheets and news updates.
Jacobs administer the Climate Change Agreements for a number of different sectors.
