Streamlined Energy Carbon Reporting (SECR)

Report UK companies energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions

Streamlined Energy Carbon Reporting (SECR) was introduced in April 2019 for large quoted and unquoted companies to report their UK energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions relating to gas, electricity and transport fuel, as well as utilising an intensity ratio and supporting information of energy efficiency action taken throughout the reporting period.

How it works

Our fully qualified assessors are able to undertake the necessary data analysis and work with you to complete your SECR report ready for your submission to Companies House in line with your companies financial year.

The Streamlined Energy Carbon Reporting (SECR) places obligations on eligible companies to:

  • Calculate total UK energy consumption (electricity, gas and transport)
  • Calculate UK greenhouse gasses (scope 1&2 – scope 3 for large UK Companies + LLPs)
  • Utilise at least one carbon intensity metric within the report
  • List of efficiency actions taken within compliance period
  • Provide a narrative explaining methodology used to base report
  • Previous years energy usage and GHG emissions with the exception of the first reporting year
  • Methodologies used in calculations

Regulatory requirements

Quoted and large unquoted companies and LLPs are required to comply with SECR with the following requirements.
