Climate Change Agreements (CCA)

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

We’ll help you achieve your Climate Change Agreement commitments

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. We can advise you on the best ways to maximise the relief for your organisation and assist in achieving targets, helping to keep your energy budget in good shape.


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.

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. CCL is due to increase significantly in 2019, a CCA can help you to protect against the increase in charges.


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.

Energy Efficiency
We will be on hand to recommend and review the energy reduction opportunities for your organisation in order to support you in achieving your energy performance targets. Not only will this enhance the financial benefits of the scheme, but it will allow you to concentrate on the core priorities of your business.

How Inenco will help

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 compliance requirements 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.

If you are an energy intensive user, then a Climate Change Agreement could be a benefit to you. Get in touch with our energy experts today by completing the contact form on the right.


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. We have successfully assisted companies to improve their CCA performance and expect to realise savings through reduction of penalties and negotiation of variations equating to £1.5m throughout the current phase of the scheme.

Quality Solutions: Supporting an international organisation with their CCA Management

A leading international manufacturing company were concerned about their CCA compliance so contracted Inenco to review their company operations and assess compliance requirements.

Our Approach

  1. Inenco explained the CCA Management service
  2. Inenco identified that a number of sites were not maximising the financial benefits of the scheme
  3. CCL relief was not being claimed, Inenco corrected this on behalf of the client
  4. Inenco undertook a full group operations review and successfully negotiated new CCAs at 8 facilities across the UK


Inenco’s experience of working with manufacturing companies has enabled us to identify further savings by restructuring CCAs due to changes in product and by ensuring performance is reported correctly within the boundaries of the scheme.

To date, this organisation have saved their business £1.5 million and were able to start claiming their annual CCL discount, as a result of recommendations from Inenco’s CCA management service.
