Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting
Environmental policy - UK.
The UK's Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) framework was introduced in April 2019.
It is designed to simplify existing energy and carbon reporting policies and to reduce the administrative burdens imposed on organisations.
Listed UK companies are required to report their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
In addition, they are required to start reporting, where practical, on their global total energy use.
They are also required to report on energy efficiency actions from the previous year.
Other non-listed large organisations are subject to similar but lighter reporting requirements.
SECR replaced the UK's Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC Scheme).
The tax element of the former CRC scheme is replaced by the Climate Change Levy.
