Climate Change Levy

The Climate Change Levy came into effect on 1st April 2000. The Levy is a tax on the business use of energy. Many intensive users of energy have entered into Climate Change Levy Agreements to mitigate the effects of this tax. Under these agreements (which were renewed in April 2013), businesses that accept and subsequently meet energy saving targets a 90% reduction in electricity from April 2013.

To obtain this discount, the Company must operate an eligible process and submit a detailed application through a relevant trade association.
