Mohawk Recognized as One of the Greenest Organizations in the U.S.
Committed to a Cleaner, Healthier Environment
As a leader in environmentally and socially responsible business practices, Mohawk was the first U.S. manufacturer of commercial printing papers to match 100 percent of its electricity with wind power renewable energy credits and the first U.S. premium paper mill to shift toward carbon neutral production. Mohawk's portfolio of recycled papers is certified by Green Seal and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
Mohawk began participating in the Green Power Partnership with the company's first windpower REC purchase in 2003. In 2005, Mohawk began to match 100 percent of the electricity used in manufacturing operations with RECs. This practice has continued to the present day.
Mohawk is proud to be an environmentally and socially responsible business, and takes pride in the company's numerous environmental partnerships and certifications, including longstanding alliances with:
- Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Green Power Partnership
- EPA SmartWay Transport Partnership
- Green-e Marketplace,
- Green Seal
- The Rainforest Alliance
- The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
Walking the Talk
Environmental commitment, social responsibility and corporate stewardship are woven into the fabric of Mohawk's culture and business practices.
Mohawk's management believes that business and industry have the creative capital and financial incentive to find innovative solutions to the most pressing environmental issues of our day: climate change, depletion of natural resources, and dependence on fossil fuels.
From simple activities like desk-side recycling, to designing and providing a unique Environmental Calculator on the company's website, to complex decisions about manufacturing techniques, energy choices and vendor selection, nothing is left unexamined by Mohawk, a company that truly walks the talk when it comes to its environmental commitment.
