Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting (SECR) is a mandatory framework for energy and carbon reporting. It came into effect in April 2019, broadly replacing the CRC Efficiency Scheme.
Since the inception of mandatory carbon reporting, Envantage’s expert team has been working with accountants, auditors and some of the largest business in the UK to measure greenhouse gas emissions.
Today, our team has the knowledge and proven expertise to support you with SECR in a way that will not only satisfy the rigours of an HMRC audit, but also identify potential savings and improvements for your business – in particular, supporting your journey to net zero.
Choosing the right partner is important – SECR is an important regulatory scheme with penalties for non-compliance, but it is also an opportunity to bring beneficial changes to your business.
Is SECR relevant to your organisation?
More than 12,000 UK organisations are obliged to comply with SECR, including all quoted companies and unquoted companies, which meet two of the following criteria:
- You employ 250 or more people
- Annual turnover is more than £36 million
- Your annual Balance Sheet is more than £18 million
Using SECR to your low-carbon advantage
Ultimately, this scheme is aimed at helping organisations like yours to identify and reduce carbon and energy emissions. Publishing emissions data helps your stakeholders to understand your approach to energy consumption and can be an invaluable way to promote your sustainability credentials and win new business.
Many organisations use the information required for mandatory submissions as the starting point to measuring their own full carbon footprint. Find out how our experts at Envantage can help you to build a complete view of your carbon impact – and the steps you can take to make measurable savings.
Envantage carried out eligibility assessments, data management, calculations and all of the reporting required within the compensation and exemption schemes relating to the Renewables Obligation (RO) and Feed-In Tariff (FIT) charges, under the Electricity Market Reform.
