Climate Change Agreement

The Federation runs the industry’s climate change agreement, which saves subscribers over £10m per year. We also support businesses in administering the scheme and share insights that we learn from running the scheme.

The Cold Chain Federation Climate Change Agreement is a statutory scheme, whereby businesses with cold storage facilities can sign up to meet legal targets for energy efficiency. Scheme participants receive up to 90% discount on the cost of their climate change levy.

The scheme is administered by Jacobs Engineering. Government legislation means that the current scheme is closed to new participants.


As national and local government takes an increasing interest in regulating and taxing your operations, the Federation is a strong voice arguing for pragmatic, constructive solutions.


We produce guidance, share case studies and run events that help you to understand how you can reduce energy use and costs in your business.


We provide opportunities for members to learn about products, systems and innovations that can make a genuine difference, through our communications and events.
