Poplar HARCA

Energy Solutions

Organisations across the UK are finding that their carbon footprint is becoming increasingly important. This has led many to set ambitious emission reduction targets. But mapping the path to net zero can be a complex task to navigate and, combined with mandatory carbon reporting, it can become overwhelming.

So when the award-winning housing association, Poplar HARCA, had to comply with SECR and map a path to net zero, they chose EIC.

With over 9,000 homes, Poplar HARCA’s energy and carbon monitoring, and its reporting process, is far from straightforward. Fortunately, EIC has extensive experience working with housing associations and we are well-versed in carbon legislation.

The Solution


EIC began by providing Poplar HARCA with a clear, concise explanation of its reporting requirements. This preliminary clarification demonstrates the level of experience and knowledge that our carbon team offers. By setting out in this way, EIC gives the client peace of mind and assurance that its carbon management is in good hands.

In addition, we provide expert data analysis, giving our clients a deeper understanding of their carbon footprint. With Poplar HARCA, not only did our data analysis assist with its mandatory carbon reporting – it also helped to identify the best solutions for its net zero journey. These sustainable options were then presented to the housing association in a coherent and straightforward way.

EIC’s support helped Poplar HARCA to stay compliant with SECR requirements, avoiding fines and reputational damage. This also means that the housing association will be well prepared for any energy and carbon reporting in the future. In this way, EIC helps clients future-proof their organisations, as emissions and sustainability take centre stage.

We also provided the client with a clear, deliverable roadmap to achieving net zero emissions. This will play a crucial role in the housing association’s energy strategy, leading them towards future sustainable growth.
