Greenstone’s team of sustainability experts can help you to interpret the SECR guidance to determine whether or not you need to report to SECR, and then formulate a plan for how to comply. Through our sustainability reporting software and support services, we enable organisations to collect, manage and report environmental data accurately and efficiently and comply with regulations such as SECR.
If you are collecting and reporting the information required under SECR for the first time or simply don’t have the internal resource, Greenstone can provide a bureau service. This flexible data collection and management service helps ensure that all data is collected efficiently across your business with a clear audit trail. As part of this service, we chase people up if they get behind and check the data for errors and anomalies, giving you extra confidence in the numbers you report. And, we’ll ensure a smooth handover if you decide you want to move data collection and management in-house.
