Preparing for the Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting (SECR) regulations

As part of the UK Government’s Clean Growth Strategy, the Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting (SECR) regulations will come into effect from 1 April 2019. The aim of these new regulations is to simplify the carbon and energy reporting requirements for companies, and encourage businesses to take action to reduce energy related emissions and costs.

Whilst BEIS (the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) work on finalising the guidance, expected at the end of this month, we thought it would be a good point to review what we know about the SECR, how it will affect companies and take a look at how Greenstone can help you to comply with the new regulations.
