Calhoun, Ga.—Mohawk Industries has received the inaugural Sustainability Greenie Award from the Coosa River Basin Initiative (CRBI). The award recognizes excellence in the area of sustainability and the company’s extraordinary efforts to protect and preserve natural resources in the upper Coosa River basin of Northwest Georgia and Northeast Alabama. The Greenie Awards were presented earlier this month at the Green Gala in Adairsville, Ga.
“We are honored to be recognized by CRBI,” said Jenny Cross, Mohawk’s vice president of corporate sustainability. “Their commitment to preserving the rivers, wildlife and our way of life in Northwest Georgia is unparalleled. Mohawk’s commitment to sustainable business benefits not just Georgia, our corporate home, but all the communities in which we operate. As a global company, we have proven that we can make a positive impact with our manufacturing processes and our products.”
