What is Climate Neutrality

A state in which human activities result in no net effect on the climate system. Requires balancing of residual greenhouse gas emissions with reductions or removals. All Climate Neutral Certified brands must meet climate neutrality standards for measuring, offsetting, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from making and delivering products and services.

This certification covers business activities and operations for the following brands :

Fireclay Tile achieved Climate Neutral Certification as part of 's certification process. 's measurement, offsetting and reduction plans fully account for Fireclay Tile's 2021 emissions

01 Measure

Fireclay Tile measured Scope 1, 2 and 3 cradle-to-customer emissions following categories and approaches established in the Climate Neutral standards.

GHG Scope 1 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 1

Emissions from energy used in buildings, fleets, and equipment.

2559 tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

0 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

Emissions from raw materials, manufacturing, shipping, air travel, and other activities in the supply chain.

5,246 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

The sum of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.

7,805 tCO2e

02 Offset

Fireclay Tile invested in projects outside of their value chain to compensate for all of their measured carbon emissions. This step supports their climate neutrality designation, and enables Fireclay Tile to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

Total Investment in Carbon Credits

Emissions Offset ?
Offset equivalency

For reference, reducing a footprint by 1000 tonnes is roughly equal to removing 230 passenger vehicles from the road for a year.

7,805 tCO2e

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We are planning to re-engineer our clay body to be able to source more local materials. In 2021, we made good progress by finding a new supplier who was located 1,000 miles closer to us who could ship large quantities via rail. But we can do better.

How We'll Reduce It

What We’re Reducing

Installing solar panels on site in our Aromas, CA operation to reduce emissions

How We'll Reduce It

Completing installation of solar panels via Mynt

03

What We’re Reducing

Installation of new Handpainting electric kiln to reduce use of Skutt Kilns

How We'll Reduce It

In Progress Reductions

01

90%

What We’re Reducing

We will reduce the emissions from our 13 Handpainted Skutt kilns

How We'll Reduce It

We will install a new Blaauw kiln that is 50% more efficient. We estimate our Handpainting kilns consume 30% of our factory emissions, so this should help reduce our overall emissions by up to 15%.

02

50%

What We’re Reducing

We will create an onsite micro grid to better manage our electricity usage.

How We'll Reduce It

We will install on site solar panels, on site battery storage, and on site generator back up.
