Mission Statement

The Council works to lay a foundation of receptivity for eco-friendly death care through an extensive outreach campaign to let consumers better understand their end-of-life options.

Description

The Green Burial Council (GBCI) is an independent, tax-exempt, nonprofit organization working to encourage both environmentally sustainable end-of-life options, and the use of burial as a new means of protecting natural areas.Through a mix of outreach, economic incentives, and solid science, our mostly volunteer organization has become the standard-bearer in this nascent field and the conduit for conservation at an intersection that’s never been crossed. The GBCI has been stewarded by individuals representing the environmental/conservation community, consumer organizations, academia, the deathcare industry, and such organizations and institutions as The Nature Conservancy, The Trust for Public Land, AARP, and the University of Colorado.Funded by contributions from individuals, certification fees, honoraria, and a grant from the Roy M. Hunt Foundation, we are represented by 300 (and growing) "approved providers" operating throughout North America, with offices in the US and Canada.
