Mandatory reporting of GHG emissions for UK companies


Starting October 1st 2013 the UK Companies Act 2006 (Strategic Report and Directors’ Report) Regulations 2013  will require all UK quoted companies to report their environmental impact and green house gas emissions as part of their annual report.

This effects all UK incorporated companies which are listed

  • on the London Stock Exchange
  • a European Economic Area market
  • or whose shares are dealing on the New York Stock Exchange
  • or NASDAQ.

Please find here the Environmental Reporting Guidance by DEFRA.

The web-tool FridaCarb allows companies to calculate their Corporate Carbon Footprint based on the DFGE TopDown Methodology. Based on the calculation also a Carbon Disclosure Project reporting (CDP) is offered.
