Step 1 - Bronze

Step 2 - Complete Sustainability Audit Questionnaire
Completing the Sustainability Questionnaire enables the funeral director to quickly examine all parts of their business to identify the areas which are already sustainable and those where further work is required. The Audit is scored by ISO 14001 auditors resulting in Silver Gold or Platinum Awards.
Step 3 - Improvement Plan
In addition to receiving your award, you will receive your own bespoke improvement plan to guide you on your journey to limit the impact of your business on the environment.
