Supporting SECR Compliance
Veolia has launched a range of energy services to help organisations comply with the UK government's Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) scheme which comes into force on 1st April.
Set to replace the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) scheme, the SECR will build on existing, mandatory, greenhouse gas emissions reporting requirements that apply to quoted companies under the Companies Act 2006 (Strategic and Directors’ Reports) Regulations 2013, as well as the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Regulations 2014.
Veolia's SECR solution consolidates reporting of scope 1, scope 2 and (optional) scope 3 emissions, and allows companies to calculation their equivalent carbon emissions in relation to energy consumption and relevant intensity ratios.
The new services add to the company's existing range of services designed specifically to implement cost-effective energy efficiency measures that reduce carbon emissions, take action on efficient energy utilisation and move towards carbon neutrality. Working across all sectors, from commercial and public to retail, healthcare, education, and manufacturing the company is able to handle all elements of an organisation’s energy requirements – from the smart energy monitoring system, Hubgrade, which can monitor and control energy, water and waste flows, to supply, management and emissions trading and onsite upgrades requiring plant design, and installation. These combined with long term maintenance will keep savings on track and can also guarantee them and work towards achieving the ISO 50001 energy management standard.
Announcing the new solutions, Richard Kirkman, Veolia's Chief Technology & Innovation Officer, said:
"Achieving compliance is not only key to business success but more importantly gives a route to reduce energy use, cut carbon emissions and deliver real cost savings. Enabling businesses to become more sustainable, and helping to deliver real gains for their bottom line, is a key factor and our energy services can play a major role in meeting these aims. By delivering guaranteed results that both reduce carbon emissions and build long term energy resilience we can help to lower carbon footprint and meet climate change targets."
