What is SECR?

Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) policy was implemented on 1 April 2019, when the Companies (Directors’ Report) and Limited Liability Partnerships (Energy and Carbon Report) Regulations 2018 came into force and coincides with the end of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme.

The policy makes it mandatory for large companies to report energy consumption and related carbon emissions in the Directors Report.

On 1 April 2019, reporting requirements will apply to the first set of accounts beginning on or after 1 April 2019. It is therefore possible that the first energy and carbon report will be due shortly after the financial year end 31March 2020, meaning that energy consumption data collection should already have started.
