USA has shown a lot of interest for promession and it has become the region with the most Promessa Friends, however, if we look at it from a per capita basis, Sweden and the Nordic is the region with the most interest in promession. It is therefore with great delight that we announce our first Promessa Representative for this exciting region!

UNIK Begravelse (, the Danish Funeral Home run by Mette Marie Nikolajsen have recently become the 9th Promessa Representative to join the growing Promessa worldwide network, and to become the first located in the Nordic region. It is also the 2nd Funeral Home to join the Promessa Franchise after realizing the huge potential of promession for their customers.

“We have for quite a while been receiving request about greener options from our customers, and we have tried meeting that with more environmentally friendly coffins and urns and planting a tree for everyone we bury or cremate. But promession offers us the chance to really be able to offer a true green, ecological and environmentally friendly burial, and an improved and greener cremation to our customers” says Mette Marie. “After completing the Promessa Masterclass I also feel knowledgeable enough to go out and push this alternative initially here in Denmark but eventually to other Nordic countries, so that we soon can launch this beautiful alternative here.”

“After the first funeral home joined our growing global network we knew it would only be a matter of time before more would follow. Nobody wanted to be the first, but as soon as someone leads the way, we anticipated more would follow, and that turned out to be the case” CEO of Promessa, Susanne Wiigh-Mäsak enthusiastically explains. “We had a really good online communication with Mette Marie pretty much from day one. After a couple of good online session she also decided to come visit our office here in Sweden with a colleague from the funeral home and this furthermore made it clear to us that she and her funeral home was the right partner for us.”

During the Promessa Masterclass, which was recently held in Denmark, two of Mette Maries colleagues and two new Promessa Ambassadors also received their mandatory franchise education, which brings the total number of representatives up to five (5) for Europe alone.

All our Representatives are working hard on developing their markets through education, ensuring everyone included in the franchise chain is ready for the deployment of a Promator by talking to legislators, established industry participants, private persons/Promessa Friends, hospital staff and others.

Promession is an environmentally friendly method developed to take care of human remains after death. The concept focuses on letting nature’s preferred method of aerobic decomposition take place, to really support new life in the soil in a positive way. This avoids the creation of methane gas and pollution of groundwater, which are environmental problems with traditional burials. For those who prefer ashes and cremation, Promessa has also developed a clean cremation method, which releases significantly less pollutants, like furans and NOx. Promessa can also guarantee Zero Mercury and Zero Dioxin release, which is impossible with the existing methods of today. And it doesn’t need any energy, which is appreciated.
