About Borough Furnace Inc.

The lifecycle of our cookware and its careful production have always been at the core of our business. At startup, we used waste vegetable oil to fuel the small furnace that made our cast iron skillets, which are made entirely from post-consumer recycled iron. As we've matured and scaled our workshop, it has been in the same spirit of circular economy. We have since scaled production with an electric induction furnace, which we plan to run on 100% on-site solar in the future. It's our hope that our cookware will be passed to the next generation, and we feel a responsibility to make sure that our output is made with care, for many lifetimes of use.

01 Measure

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

02 Offset

Borough Furnace Inc. 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 Borough Furnace Inc. to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

03 Reduce

Borough Furnace Inc. is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

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.
