New GHG Reporting for all large companies under the Companies Act 2006

New GHG Reporting for all large companies under the Companies Act 2006

It appears that the Government are looking at extending the reporting Greenhouse Gas emissions to all large companies. On 25 July 2012 the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs issued a consultation on the draft regulations which are intended to implement this GHG reporting. The consultation, which covers the UK, is open until 17 October 2012.

It will be the Companies Act 2006 that this legislation will fall into. The reporting will be from 06 April 2013, therefore giving us time to get those energy reports in order. The GHG covered are carbon dioxide, methane, hydrofluorocarbons, nitrous oxide, perfluorocarbons and sulphur hexafluoride. These are to be reported in the well known form of tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.
