Since April 2019 quoted companies and any business that meets the SECR criteria need to report on their global energy use and carbon emissions. Ignite handle all of the SECR reporting for you but more importantly we use it to focus on energy efficiency within your organisation and realise opportunities for significant emission reductions.
SECR is aimed at streamlining and simplifying reporting for energy and carbon for large UK businesses. It broadens the scope for compliance, meaning more businesses now need to comply with energy and carbon reporting legislation.
Eligible companies registered in the UK are required to report on global energy use and carbon emissions. An intensity metric must also be used that quantifies energy consumption in a way that is relevant to your business such as kWh per site. This is to make it clear that any change in your energy usage year on year is due to increased growth or decreased energy efficiency.
The SECR guidelines also state that businesses are required to report what energy efficiency actions they have taken over the previous year. This covers details of energy efficiency projects and all other measures taken to increase energy efficiency over the course of the year.
Submitting reports to remain SECR compliant may feel like a burden for your business – that’s why our expert compliance team delivers all the requirements of the SECR reporting. We carry out the necessary site audits and make sure all of the required data is being reliably collected. Ignite Energy will help your business become SECR compliant but we also offer so much more. In fact, SECR compliance can act as a catalyst for positive change in your business.
With our end-to-end management we are always looking to the future and being proactive in alignment with your goals. Once SECR reporting requirements have been met, we look at opportunities for your business to cut emissions and improve efficiency across your estate.
