Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR)
The Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting Framework, or SECR for short, is a piece of legislation from the UK Government which replaced the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC).
SECR came into place from 1st April 2019 and it is a legal requirement for all large UK companies.
For SECR compliance businesses need to include a detailed analysis of their energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and energy management projects in their annual published accounts.
The aim for SECR is to simplify carbon reporting while highlighting to companies where they could reduce energy costs, emissions, and fuel consumption. It is an opportunity to make energy policy and management decisions to benefit the company and the planet.
SECR has a degree of cross-over with the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) scheme.
SECR does not charge for emissions like the CRC does; instead, the Climate Change Levy (CCL) has been increased to cover reduced tax revenue, from 0.583 p/kWh to 0.847 p/kWh.
