The UK Government’s Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) policy was implemented on 1 April 2019, making it mandatory for large businesses, including charitable organisations, to report their energy and carbon emissions on a yearly basis. Many councils across the country have also declared climate change emergencies in their districts, highlighting the growing importance of being able to understand and act of your own emissions in a positive way. It is now enshrined in law that the UK will bring all green-house gas emissions (GHG) to net-zero by 2050.
Many energy suppliers are now providing carbon-neutral or renewable energy as a standard but there is still a long way to go to meet this target. All of this may not apply to you now but in time there will be an obligation on you as a business to at least be able to understand and act on your emissions.
The Vertas energy management team can support you and provide an initial basic report, from which the team can, work with you to develop your own robust carbon reporting methods to track and support you to reduce your current footprint.
If you are interested in reviewing your carbon reporting, please call our energy specialist, Tim Clemons, who will be happy to help. 07512 193801 or Tim.firstname.lastname@example.org.
