What is SECR (Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting)?

SECR (Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting) is a new Government reporting programme, covering business energy use and carbon emissions. It replaces the previous CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, which closed on 31 March 2019.

When does SECR start?

SECR came into force on 1 April 2019. Businesses that come under the scope of SECR will have to do their reporting for their first financial year that starts on or after 1st April 2019. This means that your first financial report will be due on or after 1st April 2020, with the exact date depending on your organisation’s financial year.
