We know that being responsible for our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) responsibilities is a key part of our goal of providing a great service.

Horizon is the first crematorium operator in the UK to undertake a full audit of its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) impacts.

We have measured our performance in 2022 and the findings of that report will form a benchmark against which we can improve in the coming years.   Some of the key findings for 2022 are:

  • Each cremation generated an average of 0.14 tonnes of CO2(e) compared to an industry average of 0.19 tonnes.
  • Our sites generated 9,134kWh of renewable electricity.
  • We planted over 1,500 trees.
  • We had zero environmental incidents or accidents.
  • 54% of Horizon’s operational full-time staff were women.
  • £56,388 was donated to 11 charities.
