SECR REQUIRES QUALIFYING COMPANIES TO
Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) requires qualifying companies to disclose three metrics and two pieces of commentary.
Metric 1: Total Energy Consumption
Most organisations can calculate this by adding their gas and electricity bills. Unquoted organisations and LLPs must also include fuel purchased for all business travel beginning and ending in the UK.
Metric 2: Scope 1 and 2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions
Using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol’s framework, Scope 1 covers direct emissions from company-controlled infrastructure, whilst Scope 2 covers emissions associated with the purchase of electricity, steam, heat, and cooling. These are expressed in carbon dioxide equivalents (CO₂e) to normalise emissions of non-carbon greenhouse gases.
Metric 3: An Emissions Intensity Ratio
To put your emissions in context, they must also be expressed relative to some business activity—e.g., tCO₂e per £/$ of turnover. The chosen ratio must be considered “most appropriate” for your core business activity.
Commentary 1: Brief commentary on action taken
You must list all actions taken in the past year to improve energy efficiency across your infrastructure and operations.
Commentary 2: Notes on Methodology
You must make it clear how you calculated your consumption, emissions, and intensity ratio.
