Cold Chain Federation response to CCA extension announcement
The Cold Chain Federation, which represents temperature-controlled storage and distribution businesses, has responded to the launch alongside today’s Spring Budget of a consultation on extending the Climate Change Agreement scheme:
Cold Chain Federation Chief Executive Shane Brennan said: “The cold storage Climate Change Agreement has been very successful in incentivising businesses in our industry to invest in energy efficiency, and the result has been a decade of significant energy efficiency progress in cold stores as well as important tax savings for the industry. Many operators now need to advance to more complex measures to make further energy efficiency improvements, while at the same time they are dealing with the cost impact of the energy crisis. The continuation of a successful Climate Change Agreement scheme is vital in supporting the investment needed to maintain momentum towards a net zero cold chain despite the challenging economic environment.
“We have been calling for the Climate Change Agreement scheme to be extended past 2025 and the consultation launched today is a really positive step towards that. We will be studying the details of the proposed extension and engaging with Cold Chain Federation members to help ensure the scheme continues to provide strong incentives and supports investment in energy efficiency for cold storage facilities.”
