Climate Change Agreements (CCA)

Helping your organisation to navigate the scheme and achieve your commitments.

Work with the compliance experts

Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) are voluntary agreements that allow eligible energy-intensive sectors to receive a reduction of up to 90% on Climate Change Levy (CCL) in return for committing to pre-determined energy efficiency targets. Manufacturers within the mineralogical and metallurgical sectors may be eligible for up to 100% relief. Inenco’s team of CCA experts have guided over 200 organisations through the scheme, with current clients benefiting from savings of £25 million per annum. They’ll advise you on the best ways to maximise the relief for your organisation, helping to keep your energy budget in good shape.

Climate Change Agreements

A Climate Change Agreement provides a broad spectrum of benefits for your organisation. Relief of CCL and avoidance of Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) are two obvious direct benefits, but those organisations that choose to partner with Inenco can achieve much more.

We’ll project manage the whole process for you, from identifying the best ways to achieve the targets and helping with the implementation of those measures, to completing all of the administration and managing key milestones on your behalf. We’ll make it easy for you to track your progress throughout the process, along with the financial benefits.

CCL Exemption for Mineralogical and Metallurgical Processes

This exemption could be applicable to your business if you use energy in the following processes:

  • Mineralogical: including, but not exclusively the manufacture of glass, ceramic and concrete products;
  • Metallurgical: including, but not exclusively the manufacture, casting and forging of metals.


You may already pay full rate CCL, be in a CCA under another scheme claiming partial CCL relief; or be captured by CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.

What are the benefits?
Paying CCL

If you are currently paying full rate CCL, there is potential to obtain up to 100% relief, depending on your energy intensive process.


Qualifying energy can enable your organisation to claim full or partial exemption from the CRC energy efficiency scheme. This is dependent on the company structure and the scope of eligible processes across your business.

Existing CCA

If you have an existing CCA at one or more of your sites, the MinMet exemption can increase the level of CCL relief you can receive, providing you with a further financial benefit. This is dependent on the scope of your CCAs and the processes undertaken within the facility.

What kind of organisation is this product designed for?

If you are an energy intensive user such as  manufacturer or operate a data centre then a climate change agreement could be a benefit to you. Even if you hold an existing CCA or are captured by CRC, talk to us about the processes you carry out and we will advise on your compliance requirements and potential eligibility.

“The Inenco CCA team have helped hundreds of organisations achieve significant financial savings, ensure compliance and provide support in meeting the energy performance targets. Our audit standard service is helping existing clients realise savings exceeding £25 million per year”
