Climate Change Agreements (CCAs)

A CCA is a voluntary agreement by energy-intensive businesses to meet energy-efficiency and carbon-saving targets, in return for a discount of up to 90% on the Climate Change Levy (CCL).

The targets for participating sectors under the current scheme apply from 1 April 2013 until 31 March 2023. The last reporting period for sector and operator performance assessment is in 2020.

Energy-intensive businesses were defined as industries covered by Part A, in Part 2 of Schedule 1 of the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 – this definition applies throughout the UK. The 2010 version of the EPR is most recent available.
