UK Mills Beat Climate Change Targets
Improvements in the energy efficiency of UK paper mills during the two-year period
2015-16 have outstripped targets set out in the Government's Climate Change Agreements
scheme by around 38 percent, reports The Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI), the
leading trade association representing the UK's paper-based industries.
All 45 paper mills in the UK participate in the Government's Climate Change Agreements
(CCA) plan. In return for delivering energy efficiency improvements over successive two-year
periods, the operating companies qualify for partial relief from the Climate Change Levy tax.
The CCA is administered by the Environment Agency for government and by CPI for mills.
For the most recent two-year period, 2015-16, the sector's agreed target was to deliver a
7.05 percent improvement over 2008 performance (defined in terms of a specific set of energy
efficiency measurements mostly related to the use of electricity). The actual improvement
achieved was 9.74 percent.
"This result shows that on top of delivering very significant improvements in energy
efficiency and carbon reduction since the Kyoto base year of 1990, UK papermaking
energy efficiency is still improving, despite the savings becoming increasingly difficult to
achieve," says Andrew Large, CPI director general. "Paper mills are investing in energy and
carbon saving measures and the industry is determined to play its part in the UK meeting
its climate change obligations."
* has entered into a definitive agreement to
acquire five U.S. Corrugated operations.
