Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) Disclosures 

HDR were commissioned to provide independent verification of our 2020 energy and carbon data, in line with the principles of BS EN IOS 14064-3:2019. A limited assurance opinion of the energy and carbon data for 2020 has been included below, and a copy of their verification statement can be found on our website.

The reported CO2 emissions for 2020 have been produced with reference to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Protocol. The reporting boundary has been defined using the operational control approach, reporting emissions for operations in which Capital & Regional has control, and does not account for GHG emissions from operations in which it owns an interest but has no operational control. Energy use from metered sources identified as fully controlled by third parties (e.g. tenants) has been excluded.

Scope 1 emissions account for the total natural gas consumed by Capital & Regional. Emissions from emergency equipment (e.g. standby generators) have been deemed deminimis and therefore is not included in the reported figures. Scope 2 emissions account for the total electricity purchased by Capital & Regional.

 

Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) Disclosures

Actual data has been used wherever possible, however some data has been estimated where required, including for the Support Office. The reported emissions represent the best information available at the time of issue, on 4 March 2021. It should be noted that the Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions (where stated in tCO2e) are absolute values. The annual figures are not directly comparable due to changes in emission factors, and the property portfolio. We have applied the 2020 “UK Government GHG Conversion Factors for Company Reporting, v1.0 9th June 20” for calculating 2020 carbon emissions. 100% of energy consumption and emissions relates to the UK.

Notes

  1. 2017, 2018 and 2019 figures have been restated where material changes were subsequently identified.
  2. The Centre figures include the Kingfisher Centre, in which C&R acts as Property and Asset Manager.
  3. Renewable energy is generated through Solar PV installed at Walthamstow Centre. System was offline for part of 2020.
  4. Scope definitions

Scope 1: Direct GHG emissions from controlled operations (natural gas consumption).
Scope 2: Indirect GHG emissions from the use of purchased electricity, heat or steam (electricity consumption).

Not all figures above total correctly due to the omission of decimal places and rounding in underlying data.
