The Government has passed a law requiring the UK to reach zero carbon emissions by 2050. Businesses will be expected to play a part in reaching this target by reporting on their carbon emissions.
UK legislation, SECR (Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting), stipulates that businesses with 250 employees or £36m turnover or £18m of balance sheet assets have to report annually on their carbon emissions.
In the wake of COP26, consultations are taking place with a view to widening the legislation to cover SMEs. It is therefore very likely that all businesses will be expected to report on their carbon emissions in the near future.
If You Supply Other Businesses
If you supply goods or services to other businesses, they may require you to start reporting on your carbon emissions. This is because their whole supply chain will be assessed as part of their own Net Zero pledge - whether they've signed up voluntarily or as a legal requirement.
If you aren't yet tracking your business's carbon emissions, now is the time to start. We've partnered with Future Net Zero to give you the tools you need to start your carbon reduction journey.
Tritility is an official FNZ Solution partner, enabling us to provide a wealth of tools and resources to help our clients benchmark and monitor their emissions.
