FBCA Environmental Policy

16th May 2022 | Environmental Issues Updates

The growing recognition of the pressures on the environment has led to at least 70% of local authorities declaring a climate emergency.

As a result, Cremation Authorities in the public sector are increasingly having to develop new ways of working to contribute to their council’s environmental targets. In support of these efforts and those being made in the private sector, it is suggested the Federation has adopted an Environmental Commitment Policy which it encourages members to adopt.

The adoption of this policy will be a clear demonstration of the commitment by the Cremation Authority to not only reduce the negative impact of cremation, but also seek ways to enhance the benefits that can be provided to the wider environment through engaging with key local stakeholders and suppliers.
