BCC campaigns for secure industrial energy supplies (gas and electricity) at internationally competitive prices – and a fair transition to a low carbon economy. All energy-intensive industries, such as ceramics, are vulnerable to massive unilateral increases in UK energy and carbon costs. As ceramic companies compete internationally, we need a level playing field. We also work across the industry to help our members share good practice to identify, develop and implement economically viable energy efficiency measures and decarbonisation technologies.

Energy

The Climate Change Levy (CCL) is applied to all non-domestic energy bills and effectively taxes businesses on their energy consumption and its associated environmental effects. By participating in a Climate Change Agreement (CCA), businesses in certain sectors may pay a reduced rate of CCL in exchange for meeting tough energy efficiency or carbon abatement targets that were agreed with the Government in December 2012.  

BCC also successfully led calls for the Government to introduce a full exemption from CCL for the energy used in mineralogical processes.

The mineralogical process exemption, which came into effect in April 2014, benefits the majority of ceramic manufacturers. 

In addition to helping ensure that members remain compliant, BCC actively monitors and provides input into Government’s policy developments in these areas. BCC is recognised by regulators as the leading contact for the ceramics industry.
