SECR – Check if you need to comply
As of April 1st 2019, Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting (SECR) commenced, with the aim of simplifying carbon and energy reporting and promoting energy efficiency. SECR reporting requires businesses to publish all energy and transport consumption and carbon emissions information.
The changes to the previous methods of reporting align SECR with the government’s new Clean Growth Strategy, which targets a 20% improvement in business and industry energy productivity by 2030.

SECR Tool – EM-Powered
It now more important than ever for businesses to monitor and review their energy consumption and devise an effective energy procurement strategy based on their data and the market conditions.
Our energy management portal, EM-Powered, is available to all our customers and comes with a range of benefits to help them achieve this. It enables users to access historical wholesale gas and electricity price graphs to get a better understanding of whether the current trends are likely to be short or long-term – invaluable when it comes down to energy contract negotiations.
With energy consumption data updated and validated overnight, EM-Powered gives customers instant visibility on where they are with their energy spend and whether they are within budget or not.
Recently an SECR tool has been added to the menu of options available, making EM-Powered an invaluable resource in carbon management, as well as energy management, as the UK strives to eliminate all greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 in the drive towards decarbonisation.
What is SECR Reporting?
Verified SECR reports can help businesses move towards carbon net-zero and reduce energy costs.
SECR came into effect in April 2019 with the aim of simplifying carbon and energy reporting and to promote energy efficiency.
Whether your business was one of 11,900 UK companies involved in the SECR process in its first year or you’re required to be involved for the first time in 2021, it is important to have all the information you need.
Given the strict targets set by government to reach net-zero by 2050, there is a good chance that carbon reporting regulations will tighten and an already complex task could become even more difficult to complete in-house. If you want to ensure accuracy and compliance, it is always worth having your reports verified by an independent expert.
What we have consistently found in our dealing with clients is that gathering accurate transport data is one of the most challenging aspects to SECR, particularly when it comes to company cars and private cars for business-use only.
