Mountain View Crematoria Environmental Policy Statement

Mountain View Crematoria is committed to leading our industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.

 

The key points of our strategy to achieve this are:

  • Selecting and operating the world's newest and most energy efficient cremation units
  • Minimise waste by continually evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible
  • Minimise emissions through the selection and use of our fleet and the source of its power requirements
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst our customers and suppliers
  • Source and promote a product range to minimise environmental impact of both our production and distribution
  • Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to our Company

 

We bring this policy to life by:

  • Purchasing one of the world's most energy efficient and clean cremator units from Austeng - an Australian engineering firm based in Geelong, Victoria
  • Moving away from using harmful PVC plastic containers to temporarily store the cremains of your loved one. These containers have been used in the industry for a long time, they are available by request
  • Selecting environmentally sensitive and recyclable packaging
  • Selecting energy efficient and environmentally friendly lighting and cleaning chemicals
  • Encouraging green recycling of flowers and other plant material with families
  • Setting up an approved recycling programme for metal handles and orthopaedic implants
