Compliance and Reporting (SECR) | The Planet Mark

COMPLy with legislation

Compliance for Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) 

The UK is on the path to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and the new mandatory SECR legislation came into effect in April 2020. Achieving The Planet Mark can help you comply by legislation while bringing many other benefits. An estimated 12,000 companies in the UK now need to disclose their energy and carbon emissions. Are you one of them?

1. SETTING TARGETS

The Planet Mark requires at least a 2.5% reduction per year. We set a 5% reduction target for most businesses, however, you can choose the targets which meet your own objectives. Once your targets are set, we measure and monitor through our unique online platform. We monitor Scopes 1, 2 and 3 carbon emissions. This includes energy, waste, water and travel. 

2. CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

As well as The Planet Mark Certificate, you’ll receive a Report which provides recommendations for improvement and evidence of continuous improvement of environmental performance on a year-by-year basis. The Certification is renewed annually upon successful achievement of the previous year’s targets, thereby instilling a strong ethos of continuous improvement into a business.

3. GOVERNANCE

Our senior management team and leadership workshops help gain support and understanding from the top. We can also assist in developing a Sustainability Policy, a key requirement of many EMS standards. 

4. COMMUNICATION AND STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

The Planet Mark is designed to communicate sustainability to audiences internally and externally to your organisation. The Certification works alongside your brand, and we provide marketing materials to facilitate this, as well as additional services to support bid and sales teams.
