BPIF Research Updates: November 2023
An overview of some of the latest activities, and industry intelligence, from BPIF Research - with BPIF Economist, Kyle Jardine.
CCA – is this your opportunity to join the scheme?
Listen to Steve Walker, BPIF Commercial Products Manager talk about CCA scheme and answer the key questions you would need to know if your are considering the scheme.
The government has recently announced a welcome two-year extension to the current Climate Change Agreement (CCA) scheme due to end in July 2025, confirming that it will not now end before July 2027.
The BPIF has long been entrusted by the government as the sole provider of the Umbrella Agreement on behalf of the whole print sector and it currently administers the scheme for around 330 of the larger energy users within the industry, saving it over £11 million every year.
Crucially, it has also reopened the joining window for the scheme to the end of September 2023. So for sites that use printing processes including Litho / Screen / Flexo / Digital / Inkjet etc and have a substantial energy usage, this is likely to be the final chance to join and take advantage of the savings.
