Mohawk Releases 2018 Sustainability Report

Calhoun, GA, April 24, 2019-The power of handprints over footprints is the focus of the 2018 Sustainability Report released online by Mohawk Industries.

This year’s report illustrates how a growing commitment to sustainability by the world’s largest flooring company is shaping business decisions that positively impact the company, its customers, employees and communities. Through innovative product design and manufacturing-and a company-wide passion for making a difference-Mohawk is broadening the definition of corporate social responsibility to both “believe in better” and “believe in beautiful.” 

The 2018 Sustainability Report reinforces Mohawk’s continued progress in doing more with less and its intent on growing its global business while reducing its environmental footprint. Across Mohawk, the company is closing in on its 2020 goals, set in 2010, to decrease energy, GHG, water and waste-to-landfill intensity by 25%. In 2018 alone, the company recycled 6.6 billion plastic bottles into yarn fiber, 136 million pounds of foam trim and yarn waste into carpet cushion and almost 42 million pounds of rubber tires into welcome mats.
