The reporting changes apply (for companies within scope) to all financial years which begin on or after 1 April 2019.

When is SECR reporting required?

 

SECR reporting is not required until 1 April 2020. If the annual period used for SECR reporting is not the same as the financial year covered by the relevant report, this must be made clear in the report.

I am not eligible, should I report?

 

Energy and Clean Growth Minister Claire Perry said: “If you don’t measure it, you can’t manage it, if you want to start the journey to Net – Zero Carbon, start the journey with SECR!
