    Project managers are facing increased changes in our world today due to constant changes in our environment, especially when it comes to finding new ways due to climate change. The lack of planning and predictability of environmental impacts of human activities often results in long-term social and economic damage. This damage is often irreversible, or the solution is highly complex. Increasing concern in relation to climate change resulting from consumption or even cultural habits has stimulated reflections and analyses of current patterns. One cultural habit as funeral methods play a highly pollutant role when it comes to our eco system. “Cemeteries can be considered as landfills of sorts“, due to a higher-than-normal concentration of potentially contaminative materials located in one place. We cannot keep cramming caskets into the earth. This thesis sheds a light on how polluted planet earth has become and the solutions citizens are fed to make a change to their routines, but the main objective of this research is to find out if there is a non-polluting way of saying goodbye to our loved ones when they leave their human form. And if so, what is it?
