Read me first: 2019 Calculator (after reading this, scroll down page to view): This calculator will automatically calculate and display your business scope 1, 2 & 3 (grey fleet) carbon emissions (kgCO2e) using 2019 UK Government GHG conversion factors.
As you work through the form, each tab will ask a series of questions (multiple choice tick boxes) that enable the calculator to determine which conversion factors to use. At the end of the questions in each tab, boxes will appear for users to input data. kgCO2e results are automatically calculated and shown on the last tab (9) based on the data inputted into these boxes. Please note, if you do not answer all the tick box questions that appear in each tab, no data input boxes will appear for the you to enter your figures in. This will mean the calcualtor will have nothing to calculate, which will make it sad.
On the last tab, you will have the option to purchase a full SECR report, which further breaks down your emissions into Green House Gases (GHG) and provides energy (kWh) consumed.
Companies are required to submit an SECR report with their directors reports that start on or after 01/04/2019. Therefore, they must cover each financial year after that date. As time moves on, we will produce a new calculator for each financial year. Please note, it takes about 6 months from the end of the calendar year for the Government to release the new conversion factors (which the calculator is built on). Therefore, if your financial year starts in 2019, use the 2019 calculator, if it starts in 2020, use the 2020 calculator (soon to be released).
Important! The data is not saved until you reach the last page and press the submit button. The calculator converts consumption data to carbon emissions (kgCO2e) therefore, you need the consumption data (litres,kWh, m3 consumed etc.) to hand to get instant results. We have built a pro forma to help you gather the data. We have also built a series of free calculators (accessed via the menu at the top of the page) to convert consumption/emissions to the required units. As you work through the form, if a tab is not relevant (e.g. HGV), just leave blank and press next. If you decide not to purchase a SECR report, still press submit and we will send your carbon emission calculations (please allow 24 hours).
Work through the calculator by pressing the ‘next’ button at the bottom, the calculator will not let you skip forward steps (although you can skip backwards). The results will be displayed on the last tab.
