Climate Change Agreements scheme extension and reforms for any future scheme - consultation

HM Treasury and BEIS would "like your views on proposals to:
  • extend the current climate change agreements (CCA) scheme by 2 years, through:
  • the addition of a new Target Period, from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2022
  • extending certification for reduced rates of CCL for participants meeting obligations under the scheme to 31 March 2025
  • re-open the scheme, allowing eligible facilities not currently participating to apply to join
In addition we’re seeking your initial views on potential reforms were there to be a future CCA scheme.

The consultation is open to anyone, but in particular we’d like views from:

  • sector associations and business which participate in the scheme
  • operators of facilities not currently in the scheme that may be eligible
  • organisations such as trade associations, NGOs, consultants and academia and other bodies who have an interest in the scheme
  • The CCA scheme operates on a UK-wide basis.
