Climate Change Agreements (CACs) are voluntary agreements that industries can enter into with the Environment Agency in the United Kingdom, designed for particularly energy-intensive sectors. Its primary objective is to reduce energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions in order to mitigate the impact of human activities on the environment and their contribution to climate change. Agreements are negotiated by sectoral bodies such as trade organisations. There are two types of CSFs – ridge agreements and underlying agreements.
