About SMMT

Manufacturing Energy and Trading Schemes (METS) WG

The METS group was set up to comply with the Climate Change Agreement (CCA), an agreement set up between industry and government to achieve a discount on the climate change levy (CCL) by meeting emissions reductions targets. The group also evolved to cover for SMMT the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) and the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) scheme. The group enables a forum for these developing energy regimes and for SMMT to develop a consensus opinion to feed into government and other stakeholders. Due to the nature of the working group’s membership it has also looked at other areas of manufacturing energy use and how that relates to government policy, such as Distribution Use of Supply charges, Feed-In Tariffs (FITs), Carbon Price Floor, GHG reporting etc.
The Group was originally called the Manufacturers Climate Change Levy and Emissions Trading Group. It reports to the SMMT’s Environmental Policy Committee (EPC).
Full SMMT members may apply to join the group.
Group correspondence is available to members in the restricted area of the site or as distributed by the Working Group secretary. For further information please e-mail techwgweb@smmt.co.uk.
