As we transition away from high-carbon emission practices towards a greener, more sustainable future, it’s almost certain that every single business sector will need to identify, manage and mitigate their environmental impacts. The good news is that many businesses have already begun rising to this challenge. They recognise that sustainable practices are key to innovation, good reputation and customer trust.

Achieving net-zero emissions is a shared goal, yet each industry faces a unique set of obstacles and considerations on the path to carbon neutrality. With that in mind, the Greener Globe Funeral Awards has developed a funeral sector-specific sustainability framework to help your business make measurable progress towards an environmentally friendly future. We offer a bespoke service to each member, providing guidance and support to empower you to make a positive environmental impact.

The Greener Globe Funeral Awards scheme has four levels, which provide funeral directors with independent certification showcasing their commitment to the environment.

Identifying environmental risks and controls

The next stage in the journey, the Silver Achievement award, involves the completion of the Sustainability Audit Questionnaire, covering generic and sector-specific areas of the business which impact on the environment. This stage enables businesses to recognise opportunities for improvements and what changes – big or small – can be made to reduce your carbon footprint, drive eco efficiencies and make cost reductions.

Gold award

Adopting and implementing an immediate improvement plan

This involves making minor changes and small steps within a short time scale.

Platinum award
