Current Year Reduction Actions

01

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

What We’re Reducing

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