Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) was introduced in 2019, as legislation to replace the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Scheme. It was implemented to improve visibility of carbon reporting and encourage energy efficiency in businesses, providing both economic and environmental benefits, supporting companies reduce their costs and improve efficiencies.
SECR REQUIRES OBLIGATED COMPANIES TO REPORT ON THEIR ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND ASSOCIATED GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS ANNUALLY WITHIN THEIR FINANCIAL ACCOUNTS FOR COMPANIES HOUSE. THE LEGISLATION ALSO REQUIRES REPORTING ON ANY ENERGY EFFICIENCY MEASURES AND EMISSIONS WITH REFERENCE TO AN INTENSITY METRIC, E.G. TONNES OF CO2E/£M SALES REVENUE.
