The UK Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) officially began in April 2002, and is the first cross-industry, national greenhouse gas emissions trading scheme in the world. Under the scheme, companies could chose to enter the scheme either through a timed auction as a direct participant with absolute targets, as 34 companies chose to do, or through Climate Change Levy Agreements (CCAs). These agreements have been negotiated with some 40 industry sectors, covering 6,000 companies and effectively providing 'automatic entry' to the ETS. Companies subject to a CCA are not required to trade, but many will find it advantageous to use trading as a way to achieve compliance with minimum cost.
