The Co-operative Funeralcare - Additional options price list


Championing responsible business Our business has always had a purpose beyond profit, working together with others for the benefit of our communities. Underpinning this is our commitment to championing a responsible and different way of doing business, one that has a positive impact on society, the local economy and the environment and plays its part in creating a fairer society and sustainable future. We support the global goals (UN’s Sustainable Development Goals), described as the world’s ‘to-do list’, focused on addressing the world’s biggest challenges. These are a call to action to end poverty, protect our planet and ensure everyone can enjoy peace and prosperity. We ensure our plans support their delivery and we work collaboratively with our colleagues, customers, members, and other partners to promote this agenda regionally.

OUR ENVIRONMENT We are proud to be supporting initiatives to make our funerals and our business more environmentally sustainable. These initiatives help us to reduce our environmental footprint and enhance the natural areas in which we operate.


We are keen to play our part in tackling the climate and ecological challenges we now face, so we are urgently cutting greenhouse gas emissions and making space for wildlife and nature recovery. We are committed to reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions from our operations by 50% by 2030 compared to 2019 i.e. those emissions relating to the electricity, gas, fuel and refrigeration we use. We are making good progress. A fully electric hearse (see page 17) is part of our End of Life Services vehicle fleet alongside other hybrid vehicles. Alongside site based energy saving initiatives, we have invested

in LED lighting in all our funeral homes and solar panels in some locations. We also encourage our colleagues to identify energy saving opportunities to take action to save energy. We operate a recycling programme in our funeral homes and work in partnership with Wildlife Trusts across our region to support nature recovery at our own sites and within our communities.
