Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting

Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting

Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) is the new industry legislation replacing the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Scheme. The scheme changes the requirements for energy and carbon emissions reporting, putting more responsibility on organisations to choose how they measure and report their emissions.

SECR will help contribute to the government's Clean Growth Strategy ambition of enabling business and industry to improve their energy consumption by at least 20% by 2030.

SECR requires businesses to include their energy use (including electricity, gas and transport) emissions and an intensity metric in their annual Directors' report.

All SECR participants must provide a marrative commentary on energy efficiency action taken in the financial year.

Who does it apply to?

Large UK incorporated companies are required to comply with SECR if they have two of the three qualifying conditions;

  • at least 250 employees,
  • an annual turnover greater than £36m,
  • and an annual balance sheet total over £18m.


SECR has been designed to make energy and carbon reporting simpler, aligning with existing reporting mechanisms to reduce the burden of compliance requirements on organisations.

Our compliance assessors can provide end-to-end SECR compliance assistance as a service. We calculate accurate emissions for your organisation and provide all necessary documentation for SECR compliance.

Our Chartered Assessors can produce your first SECR report, creating a template that fits your business for future use. We will decide the most appropriate metrics to measure your business against and express your emissions as a ratio of activities chosen specifically for your company. We can carry out all necessary audits to ensure you are fully compliant with SECR, with minimal disruption to your organisation.
