What the GBC does is simple: we recognize the effort of each provider making significant changes that support the American public’s emerging ethic of environmental sensitivity that includes foregoing the use of toxic chemicals, expensive, resource and energy intensive caskets, concrete, fiberglass or plastic vaults.
This is mirrored by the GBC’s commitment to working with the industry, not against it, to improve practices and products that will meet the needs of Americans. We are interested in how to effect real change by providing a realistic, verifiable standards-based rating system so the public has a reliable measure when making environmentally sensitive and responsible funeral choices.
