A fantastic special report on BBC South Today by #AlexisGreen, tackling the environmental impact of burial and cremation here in the UK and how new and innovative technology such as Electric Cremators, the first of which was installed in a Crematorium in North Oxfordshire, can reduce our environmental impact after we pass.
Jon Cross of the Environmental Stewardship Group, also spoke about how we aim to help lead the bereavement sector towards sustainability, which will help to reduce the end of life impact on the environment.
This is another fantastic step forward for the ESG and for the sector in raising awareness and the education of the public to the impact which end of life services has on the environment.
The ESG are pleased to launch the State of the Sector report following the 'Year 0' activities in which the sector came together through a series of roundtable events to identify the concerns, challenges, hopes and aspirations of the sector in regards the Climate Emergency.
On Tuesday the 6th of July the third and final round table in the first series of the Environmental Stewardship Groups look at the state of the sector in respect of the climate emergency and carbon reductions took place.
