Services - Carbon Footprinting and Reporting

Mandatory Carbon Reporting

Quoted companies are now required to report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in their Directors' Report. This is a requirement of the Companies Act 2006 (Strategic Report and Directors' Report) Regulations 2013.


Mandatory carbon reporting now applies to all quoted companies; being those that are UK incorporated and whose equity share capital is listed on the London Stock Exchange or in an EEA State, or admitted to trading on the NYSE or Nasdaq.


The Regulations require reporting of:-

  • all 6 Kyoto GHGs
  • emissions from fuel combustion, electricity, heat, steam etc
  • for activities under the company's global control
  • a ratio(s) to express the intensity of emissions
  • results for preceding year (except in first year)
  • methodologies used


The Regulations apply to reporting periods with year ends on and after 30/09/13. Companies will need to start gathering data for inclusion in their next Directors' Report.


The requirements are similar to those of voluntary schemes such as the Carbon Disclosure Project (see below). For this reason Burton Environmental can bring considerable expertise and experience to calculate your carbon emissions and compile reports.

Carbon Disclosure Project

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is the World’s largest voluntary carbon reporting initiative. Burton Environmental has 6 years of experience in managing Carbon Disclosure Project submissions. Our work ranges from calculating the carbon emissions for a single site, up to managing all aspects for a global corporation. We understand the scoring system and can advise on how to improve both your Disclosure score and Performance score.
