SECR (or Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting) is a mandatory UK government framework. The purpose of this style of reporting is to simplify the process for companies and ultimately reduce emissions from business and industry by 80% by 2050.
If your company was already sharing details about their energy usage through ESOS and CRC, then you can expect to qualify for the SECR. Alternatively, if your company has at least 250 employees, an annual turnover of £36m or more and/or an annual balance sheet total greater than £18m you will need to comply.
The process involves qualifying companies reporting on their scope 1 and 2 emissions, energy use from electricity, gas and transport, along with providing narrative commentary on any energy efficiency action undertaken in the past 12 month reporting period.
You can expect this assessment to take you a few days to complete.
The process is lengthy and must be done correctly, which is why we always recommend using a specialist such as Elmhurst Energy Consultancy.
