Energy & Carbon Reporting Regulations

Our service will bring together all the information required to create an Energy and Carbon Report

From 1 April 2019, the Government's Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) policy legally requires some large businesses to prepare an Energy and Carbon Report (within a Directors' Report) to detail annual emissions.


Who needs to comply?

Is your business classed as a large company under the Companies House Act 2006? Are you monitoring your business's energy consumption across all fuels?

The legislation affects all UK businesses classed as a large company:

A large company is one which meets two of the following three criteria:

  • At least 250 employees

  • Annual turnover of more than £36m

  • Balance sheet of over £18m

This includes all quoted companies, large unquoted companies and large Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs).

Next steps...

If your company meets the criteria, an Energy and Carbon Report must be included within the Directors’ Report (for financial years that start on or after 1 April 2019).

The report requirements are different for quoted and unquoted companies; however, as a minimum the following details should be included:

  • Energy use - to include purchased electricity, gas and transport
  • Associated GHG emissions
  • At least one intensity ratio
  • Energy efficiency action taken
  • Methodology used
