SECR (STREAMLINED ENERGY AND CARBON REPORTING)
The introduction of the Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) policy by the UK government in April 2019 aimed to encourage progress towards a low-carbon economy.
HOW TO COMPLY
As per the program's guidelines, companies obligated to adhere must submit yearly reports concerning energy emissions, as well as scope 1 and scope 2 emissions.
SECR builds upon existing emissions reporting requirements, but it does not supplant them; rather, these other reporting obligations remain in effect alongside SECR.
The Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)
Climate Change Agreements (CCA) Scheme
EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS)
Mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting for quoted companies
DOES MY BUSINESS QUALIFY?
The scheme is applicable to any UK-based company that fulfills at least two of the subsequent criteria during a financial year:
More than 250 employees
Over £36m Annual turnover
Over £18m on Annual balance sheet
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO MY BUSINESS?
The implementation of SECR has the potential to bring about £1.5 billion in societal benefits, achieved through carbon savings, better air quality, and reduced noise pollution.
