The UK government’s 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.

Qualifying UK companies must include a SECR statement into their annual accounts for fiscal years starting on or after 1 April 2019.

Simply put:

In April 2019, the Carbon Reduction Commitment was replaced by the SECR Scheme. Companies will qualify for the scheme if it meets two of the following criteria:

  • a balance sheet of £18 million+,
  • an annual turnover of £36 million+,
  • and 250+ employees.

The government encourages all private sector organisations which are not in scope of the legislation to report similarly, although this remains voluntary.
