About the service
The Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) was introduced in the UK in April 2019 and was brought in to simplify energy and carbon emissions reporting for all businesses.
Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) is mandatory for organisations who fall into the following categories
“Quoted” companies – these can be of any size. They are already obliged to report under mandatory greenhouse gas reporting regulations.
“Unquoted” companies – companies that are incorporated in the UK and meet the definition of a ‘large’ company as defined by the Companies Act 2006, irrespective of whether they’re registered and unregistered companies. This includes ‘Large’ Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs), ‘Large’ charitable organisations.
More simply, if your company meets two or more of the criteria below, your company will be considered “large”
- You have more than 250 employees
- You have a turnover greater than £36m
- Your balance sheet totals more than £18m
t is estimated that around 12,000 UK organisations will need to comply with the SECR regulations as they meet the mandatory requirements outlined.
As well as those businesses that must comply, due to the rising importance of Corperate Social Responsibility (CSR), some organisations may decide to voluntarily carry out Energy and Carbon Reporting in a similar manner to the SECR regulations.
If you are unsure whether your organisation will need to comply with SECR regulations or simply want to understand your business’ carbon impact, contact us for advice.
