Helping manage your utilities compliance
With the release for the Energy White Paper in December 20, it is projected that more legislation will follow from the government requiring Mid-Market and SME organisations to be more aligned to large businesses. Large businesses are legally required to report on their energy and carbon emissions annually. Along with any reduction strategies they have taken through the financial year through ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme) and SECR (Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting.
SECR/ESOS – for large businesses >40,000kWh + one of the below;
Turnover (gross or income) of £36m or more
Balance sheet assets of £18m or more
250 employees or more
About 12,000 UK businesses sit in this category.

Climate Change Agreement (CCA)
All industrial and commercial users of gas, electricity, and other fossil fuels are likely to pay Climate Change Levy.
The Climate Change Agreement (CCA) is a voluntary, UK government energy efficiency scheme that has recently been extended to 2025. Participants in the scheme receive a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL) in exchange for agreeing to work towards energy efficiency improvement and carbon dioxide (CO2) emission reduction targets.
Sustainable Business Services can help your business if you have or are interested in committing to the scheme.
Energy Performance Certificates
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rates how energy efficient your building is using grades from A to G (with ‘A’ the most efficient grade).
When you need an EPC
You must have an EPC if:
you rent out or sell the premises
a building under construction is finished
there are changes to the number of parts used for separate occupation and these changes involve providing or extending fixed heating, air conditioning or mechanical ventilation systems
