Pet water cremations offers a gentle and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional cremation for your pet.
Aquamation, or alkaline hydrolysis, is a natural process in which an animal returns to nature by being placed in a gentle stream of flowing water. Water cremations simply and gently accelerate the natural decomposition that occurs after death.
Alkaline hydrolysis is an environmentally friendly process that creates minimal pollution and can help preserve the environment.
Your pet’s ashes will be returned to you for scattering or in an urn, as you wish.
Climate Change Action
Pet Water Cremations is a NoC02 business certified by the Carbon Reduction Institute (CRI) under the NoCO2 Program. To achieve this status and become carbon neutral Pet Water Cremations undertook the following process:
- Commissioned a NoCO2 audit from CRI to measure their carbon footprint, through the determination of the GHG emissions that resulted from their operations. CRI’s NoCO2 audit follows the standards outlined by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (1), in addition to the international standard ISO 14064.1 (2).
- Have committed to offset their unavoidable emissions through the purchase of units in approved projects under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), and
- Committed to ongoing annual auditing of their emissions.
What does Carbon Neutral Service Certification mean?
By meeting the requirements of the NoCO2 Program, Pet Water Cremations is now a carbon neutral business. All services provided by Pet Water Cremations are carbon neutral and can display the Carbon Neutral Service Logo.
What Carbon Credit Projects does Pet Water Cremations purchase offsets from?
India Clean Energy from Biomass
The aim of Biomass projects is to utilize agricultural waste or other non-renewable biomass residues as fuel to generate power and to lower the plants’ dependence on the local grid for electricity. Before the implementation of the project, the electricity needs of such plants were met by power from a coal dominated grid. To meet the rising energy demands in production, a new efficient biomass boiler was installed together with a steam turbine, producing both steam and electricity. The new boilers are fuelled with locally available agricultural waste instead of traditional, emission intensive coal.
Before the start of the project, these agricultural residues were not used. They were either burned without harnessing the resulting thermal energy, or simply left to decay, thereby generating methane emissions. The plant’s steam and electricity requirements can be now supplied by the new cogeneration unit. The investment required for the installation of the new cogeneration unit could not have been raised were it not for the revenue from sales of carbon credits.
