Climate Change Agreements
We’re deeply involved in the management of Climate Change Agreements, mainly through the activities of our parent holding company, FEC Services, operating in the agricultural industry in partnership with the NFU.
Some energy-intensive business sectors are allowed to enter into Climate Change Agreements with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) through their trade association, and we operate three such agreements for the pig, poultry and horticultural sectors.
We represent some 700 companies in this area, gathering energy information, negotiated targets and trading carbon to enable them to gain a 65% discount on Climate Change Levy. This brings a benefit of over £1.4m per year in reduced taxation alone.
If you need help with Carbon Trading or the operation of these agreements, we can help.
