Furch Guitars sourcing 100% of electricity from renewables

The average carbon footprint created during the production of one guitar will be reduced from 35.3kg to 14.1kg of CO2

Czech guitar manufacturer Furch Guitars is reducing its carbon footprint by sourcing all of its electricity needs from renewable energy.

Last year, a quarter of the company's electricity was supplied by renewable sources - mainly solar, followed by biogas, wind and biomass - from large energy suppliers, increasing to 100% this year.

Furch Guitars expects its carbon footprint to fall by up to 60% when gas and automotive fuels are included, which are part of its operating energy consumption.
