What is SECR?
Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) was launched in April 2019 and is a replacement for the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) energy efficiency scheme.
The SECR regulations will apply to more than 11,000 companies in the UK and the aim is to increase the awareness and implementation of energy efficiencies within an organisation.
Our specialist energy consultants can guide your organisation through to compliance.
Who needs to comply with SECR?
UK registered, quoted companies and unquoted large companies, (defined as large according to the Companies Act 2006) with two or more of the following criteria apply to a company within a financial year:
More than 250 employees
Annual turnover greater than £36m
Annual balance sheet total greater than £18m
*If a company crosses the threshold into a large company, the change must persist for two years for the classification of the company to change.
SECR is not a replacement for ESOS compliance
Please note that the SECR qualifying thresholds are different from those used for ESOS qualification. For more information about ESOS and the specific thresholds for ESOS Phase 3, go to our ESOS webpage.
Our experience has shown that significant energy savings can be identified through the reporting process.
