Crematoria offer significant environmental opportunity

Statistics from the Cremation Society confirm that in 2022 there were 526,116 cremations, that is just over 79% of UK funerals. Until an alternative to cremation is introduced, continuing to make the current process more sustainable will significantly reduce the impact of the death care sector on the environmental.

Proudly demonstrate you are part of the solution

Over 70% of councils have declared a climate emergency and private crematoria companies are recognising the need to become more sustainable. Crematorium Managers recognise the importance of their role to support the environment. When you adopt a Trusted Crematorium Environmental policy and complete our Sustainability Audit Questionnaire, it will demonstrate to your communities that the culture of your organisation is aligned with theirs.
