Calhoun, Ga.—Mohawk Industries has earned a place among America’s Climate Leaders presented by USA Today. Mohawk was the only flooring manufacturer among the businesses recognized for making the greatest reductions in their carbon footprint. USA Today’s climate leadership rankings are presented in collaboration with Statista, Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
“To be ranked as one of America’s Climate Leaders is a great honor and reflects the great work being accomplished by thousands of our associates across our global operations,” said Malisa Maynard, Mohawk’s vice president of sustainability. “We are continuing to identify new and innovative ways to lower greenhouse gas emissions while creating sustainable products that improve homes and public spaces in approximately 170 countries.”
Mohawk is recognized as a worldwide leader in sustainability with one of the most comprehensive collections of environmentally sensitive products for residential and commercial spaces. For instance, all Mohawk Group commercial flooring products are carbon neutral plus a 5% offset. The company’s premium laminate products store carbon through their high recycled wood content. The Daltile, American Olean and Marazzi ceramic tile brands have reduced their carbon output by 17% since 2018.
America’s Climate Leaders were determined by evaluating thousands of U.S.-based public and private companies with revenues of more than $50 million. Companies that achieved the highest year-over-year reduction in emissions intensity (compound annual reduction rate) from 2019 through 2021 were included in the list published in USA Today’s May 24 print and digital editions.
