Recently, Mohawk released their 2014 sustainability report. The report details how the company has honed its ability to grow profitably and responsibly while acquiring and integrating 30 new businesses in the past three decades.
“Our continued success at Mohawk is due in large part to growing the organization responsibly,” Mohawk Industries chief sustainability officer Dave Patton said. “With our ongoing internal investments and acquisitions, we are committed to taking responsible actions in line with our philosophy of sustainability, and we will continue providing value to our stakeholders, customers, community partners and all of our employees whose good work drives our success.”

According to Mohawk, highlights include:

  • Nearly $4 billion of investments in acquisitions and capital improvements since 2013
  • Double-digit percentage improvements across all safety metrics
  • Strong progress toward 2020 goals of reducing energy, greenhouse gasses (GHG), water and waste to landfill
    • Energy Intensity down more than 11 percent
    • Greenhouse Gas Intensity down more than nine percent
    • Water Intensity down nearly 16 percent
    • Waste to Landfill Intensity down more than 13 percent
  • In addition to a fifth straight year of reductions in energy intensity, the company also saw a reduction in absolute energy use even as Mohawk’s footprint expanded
  • Expansion of sustainable best practices across all businesses
  • Zero Waste to Landfill initiative successfully implemented within all business segments
  • Continued growth in the area of product transparency with environmental product declarations, health product declarations and Declare labels now covering a larger percentage of our product base
  • Once again recognized by Newsweek as one of the top green companies in the United States

“We understand that the best companies are those that operate profitably and sustainably, which is why we are so proud of the progress we have made toward our 2020 goals during the reporting period and particularly with our reduction in absolute energy consumption,” Mohawk Industries’ vice president of corporate sustainability Jenny Cross said. “These practices are consistent with our values as a company and increasingly with the personal values of millions in our global community.”

World Environment Day!

world environment dayTaking care of the environment is one of the most important things we can do, and many of our carpet and hardwood manufacturers create environmentally friendly flooring. Shaw, Mohawk, Armstrong, and IndusParquet are just a few of the manufacturers who create products that help the environment.
Shaw Industries has many environmentally friendly products, which are Cradle to Cradle certified. Cradle to Cradle focuses on designing so that waste is never an option. Cradle to Cradle creates products that will be deconstructed and recycled back into their original materials over and over again. Here are some of Shaw’s Cradle to Cradle certified products: Anso Type 6 Nylon fiber, Eco Solution Type 6 nylon fiber, EcoWorx carpet tile backing, EcoWorx Broadloom, EcoWorx Performance Broadloom backing, Zeftron Nylon fiber, and Epic hardwood. cradle to cradle

Anso nylon carpets are some of Shaw’s most popular green products. All of the carpets and area rugs made from Anso nylon can be recycled at Shaw’s Evergreen Nylon Recycling facility. Evergreen enables Shaw to recycle post-consumer carpet back into new carpet over and over again.

Another Shaw carpet fiber that helps the environment is the ClearTouch fiber. ClearTouch carpets are made of PET plastic from recycled soda and water bottles. ClearTouch carpets are very soft, and they also help reduce plastic bottle waste. ClearTouch PET carpets contain a minimum of 25% recycled content, and the ClearTouch Platinum carpets contain a minimum of 50% post-consumer recycled content.

Mohawk SmartStrand carpets are also green products. The SmartStrand fiber is made in part with annually renewable plant-based materials that minimize the usage of limited natural resources. Using renewable plant-based materials allows Mohawk to reduce energy consumption. SmartStrand carpets are durable, beautiful, and beneficial to the environment.

Armstrong is another manufacturer who helps out the environment by practicing sustainable forest management. They also help reduce the impact of logging practices. The majority of wood that Armstrong uses in their domestic hardwood flooring is sourced from the Appalachian hardwood region, where the growth rate is an average 2+ trees for every tree harvested. Also, their engineered hardwood flooring is certified as a low-emitting (low VOC) wood product.

IndusParquet is another hardwood manufacturer that focuses on helping the environment. IndusParquet operates in compliance of government regulations, assuring that the natural resources used in the production of IndusParquet products are manufactured efficiently with minimum impact on the environment. The timber harvest in Brazil is strictly controlled by the government, and the harvest is limited to a maximum of eight trees per 3/4 acre. Endangered trees and trees that provide food for animals are preserved. They are not allowed to be harvested. Also, every tree that is harvested is tagged with an ID code that stays with the tree throughout the manufacturing process.
In addition, IndusParquet has adopted a zero waste policy. 100% of all the wood that enters the factory is used. IndusParquet also owns three vast reforestation plantations to help assure a sustainable resource. Make sure to look for the “Made in Brazil” mark for exotic wood flooring made to protect and preserve the environment.
