With an ever-growing culture surrounding the environmental impact of our businesses, Carbon Reporting is more than ever a crucial factor in an ESG-compliant company.
Carbon Reporting may seem daunting, but GCL is here to make the process as simple as possible.
What is SECR, and why has it been implemented?
Streamlined Energy Carbon Reporting (SECR) is the name given to legislation put into place by the UK Government in 2019. This legislation, which replaces the Carbon Reduction Commitment scheme, encourages companies to report on their energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions within their financial reporting for Companies House. It is a requirement for all non-SME companies.
As well as an incentive to bring awareness to the carbon footprints of businesses, SECR intends to encourage the implementation of energy efficiency measures to reap both environmental and economic benefits. When implemented effectively, these measures should support companies in improving productivity and cutting costs, all while reducing carbon emissions.
Who needs to comply with the SECR framework?
The following categories of organisations are required to comply with the SECR unless they meet exemption criteria:
Private sector companies that do not meet the above criteria are encouraged to report voluntarily in a similar manner.
For more information about whether you need to comply, see government guidelines.
