Calhoun, Ga.—Mohawk Group has become part of a growing list of “visionary” sponsors of the Health Product Declaration (HPD) Collaborative. The HPD Collaborative is a customer-led organization committed to the continuous improvement of the building industry’s performance through transparency, openness and innovation in the product supply chain.
“As a member of the HPD Collaborative Manufacturer’s Advisory Panel for the past year, I have watched the Collaborative empower companies from around the country to be highly engaged in the transparency process,” said Rochelle Routman, director of sustainability for Mohawk. “Mohawk is fully committed to product disclosure and we believe the HPD process will encourage the development of more innovative green building products that will result in healthier indoor environments. We saw a similar transformation in the marketplace with food labelling in the 1990s, and the building products industry is headed in this same direction.”
