Customers value sustainability
More than ever, your customers are reflecting the desire of their clients for greener funerals, holding a Greener Globe Funeral Award shows your commitment.
The Greener Globe Funeral Awards Sustainability Audit helps you reduce the use of resources, water, electricity, paper and fuel – increasing sustainability and reducing costs.
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.
Committing to source, manufacture and deliver products and services sustainably, enables you to support your customers on their environmental journey.
Funeral Directors recognise the importance of their reputation for supporting the environment. When you adopt a Trusted Suppliers Environmental policy and complete our Sustainability Audit Questionnaire, it will demonstrate to your clients that the culture of your organisation is aligned with theirs.
Step 1 - Bronze
Adopting an environmental policy is an important first step for any businesses seeking to be more sustainable and qualifies for the Suppliers Bronze Award. If you do not have an environmental policy, adopt our own straightforward Trusted Suppliers Environmental Policy designed especially for you.
