Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting Made EasySolutionSoftware
Accuvio SECR Software Package
Accuvio provides an off-the-shelf software package for SECR compliance which streamlines the data collection and reporting process, and in addition makes audit and expansion easy in the future.
The SECR software solution, is easy to use, requires little or no training, can be setup in a few days, and provides all the required reports as standard with no hidden costs.
Note: Relevant only for organisations in the United Kingdom.
The 2018 SECR Regulations bring in additional disclosure requirements for quoted companies. The 2018 Regulations also introduce requirements for large unquoted companies and limited liability partnerships to disclose their annual energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, and related information.
- Quoted companies;
Quoted companies in this respect are those whose equity share capital is officially listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange; or is officially listed in an European Economic Area State; or is admitted to dealing on either the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ.
- Large unquoted companies;
- Large Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs):
The qualifying conditions are met by a company or LLP in a year in which it satisfies two or more of the following requirements:
• Turnover: £36 million or more • Balance sheet total:£18 million or more • Number of employees:250 or more
Remember you may fall within these categories even if not for profit or if undertaking public activities e.g. are registered companies or are companies/LLPs owned by universities, academies or NHS Trusts.
Under changes introduced by the 2018 Regulations, large unquoted companies and large LLPs are obliged to report their UK energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions as a minimum relating to gas, electricity and transport fuel, as well as an intensity ratio and information relating to energy efficiency action, through their annual reports.
Quoted companies of all sizes continue to be required to report their global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and an intensity ratio through their annual reports. Additionally, they are now required to report their total global energy use and information relating to energy efficiency action alongside the methodology used to calculate the new and existing disclosure requirements.
The new requirements apply to reports for financial years starting on or after 1 April 2019.
The table below gives an example of the first financial year for which the relevant Report must comply with SECR for organisations with different reporting year start dates.
Assured calculations in CO2e audit-able to each of the 6 or 7 Kyoto gasses, GWP’s and complete trace-ability to source.
Use intensity metrics that suit your organisation, or choose a metric from our library for the best intensity ratio.
Global coverage for both market based and location based emissions factors.
Track your energy efficiency projects and actions by site, easily rolling them up into a single report by business unit, location, or division.
Customisable dashboards and reports allow for easy detailed year on year analysis by quantity consumed and CO2e.
The Accuvio solution is 100% compliant with the auditor requirements including but not limited to methodology transparency, evidence, and approved extrapolations when data is unavailable.
With over 62,000 emissions factors in the continually expanding Accuvio global database, we have all the emissions factors you will ever need, including the new 2018 IEA emissions factors licensed for all our users. We look after the emissions factor updating regularly so you don’t have to.
Many hands make light work
By sharing the workload with your colleagues around the world, the data collection task can be very efficient, with the added bonus of local engagement and driving change. The easier it is to use, and the less opportunity for data entry error, the better your results will be.
Global Unit Conversions
One of the most common failings of unspecialised systems or spreadsheets is the calculation errors that occur offline when converting one unit of measure to another. Accuvio’s universal converter accepts any unit as input and translates to the required unit of measure while maintaining the original input for audit.
Impacted byReporting to ESOS also?
The Accuvio SECR software package can be combined with the ESOS package meaning you only need to gather the data once, for complete global compliance with SECR and ESOS. If you are also doing mandatory GHG reporting or CDP reporting, our Sustainability Reporting package will address all of the above on one platform.
