CIABATA is the subsidiary company of the Chemical Industries Association, which manages and administers the chemical sector climate change agreement (CCA) with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the Environment Agency (EA) on behalf of participating members.
Participants in the CCAs qualify for relief from the Climate Change Levy, a tax on the business use of energy, in exchange for committing to challenging energy targets up to 2020.
CIABATA’s role as CCA sector manager is to support members’ participation in the CCAs and to represent them in interactions with DECC, who set CCA policy, and EA who are the scheme Administrator.
The chemical sector has a good track record for improving its energy efficiency:
- Under the chemical sector CCA it improved its energy efficiency by 20% between 1998 and 2010.
- Under the New CCAs the sector has committed to an 11% improvement between 2008-2020. The new target takes account of the diminishing potential for cost-effective improvement.
