Carbon Neutral Cremation
Investing in our shared future
At Solace, we think there’s a better way. It is in that spirit that we’ve partnered with renewable energy company 3Degrees to make all of our cremations carbon neutral. 3Degrees sells carbon offsets in the form of renewable energy certificates (RECs). Carbon offsets enable organizations like ours to reduce our environmental impact by supporting projects that are actively working to reduce, absorb or prevent carbon and other emissions from entering the atmosphere. These projects can be in the form of forestry conservation efforts or technology that captures gas before it is released at locations like landfills or farms. Carbon offsets are tools that help make these projects financially viable.
We are very proud of the fact that every Solace cremation is carbon neutral at no additional expense to the families we serve. This purchase is an important step in Solace’s sustainability path.
SOLACE CREMATIONS ARE CARBON NEUTRAL
Cremation is better for the environment than traditional burial but still has a carbon footprint. We decided early on to do the right thing with the voluntary purchase of carbon offsets.
How it Works
Carbon offsets let organizations like ours reduce the carbon footprint of our energy use. Our partner organization uses renewable energy certificates to fund important environmental projects. Learn more on the 3Degrees website.
