Kamanu Composites is Hawaii’s largest manufacturer of outrigger canoes. The carbon fiber composite canoes are constructed completely in their Kailua, O’ahu based facility. Because composites manufacturing is inherently damaging to the environment and energy intensive, Kamanu is committed to pursuing every avenue available in order to reduce its carbon footprint. Kamanu currently uses about 58,000 KWH of wind energy per year in the production of their canoes. While most sustainability initiatives are difficult and process oriented, switching to renewable energy is not. It was the first step of many in their path towards sustainability.
