Maintaining Exemplary Standards

Corporate Responsibility

Key Pillars


We believe enduring success can only be built on a foundation of responsible business practices, which is why our pillars of corporate responsibility are key to providing industry leadership that grows our business in socially responsible ways.

We also recognize the impact we have on our communities, customers, employees and stakeholders, and as such, are committed to embedding responsible business practices into our business model, including commitments to assess sustainability-related risks and capture value-added opportunities, support diversity and inclusion, provide a safe and healthy environment for all employees, and promote a culture where all of our employees share the foregoing commitments.

Our Future

Sustainability Efforts

We are working towards a more sustainable future for both our business and the planet. To do this, we are:

  • Performing regular emissions air modelling of some of our crematoriums to track the particles of combustion released into the atmosphere and to assess our impact on the environment;
  • Exploring different carbon offset programs to protect the health of our planet;
  • Implementing energy and water conservation initiatives where feasible;
  • Piloting fuel-efficient methods of performing lawn care maintenance at certain cemeteries;
  • Replacing equipment/machinery with more energy-efficient technologies;
  • Providing spoils (extra dirt from cemeteries) from certain cemeteries to city contractors for use in connection with urban renewal projects; and
  • Participating in a metals recycling program by collecting leftover metals post-cremation.
