Support your customer’s environmental journey

70%* of greenhouse gas emissions are ‘scope 3’ and include those that occur in products and services from suppliers. Funeral directors are increasingly looking at their supply chain as they endeavour to meet the needs of their growing number of environmentally aware clients.
