Mohawk Industries 2019 Sustainability Snapshot | 100 Years of Believing in Better

Mohawk Industries recently launched their 2019 Sustainability Snapshot to share the company’s steadfast commitment to a sustainable future through examples of company-wide progress during the past calendar year. 

Mohawk’s report will be more dynamic than ever, with new content added throughout 2020 to illustrate how the world’s largest flooring company is placing sustainability initiatives at the forefront of decision-making. The various stories from around the globe highlight how Mohawk is shaping an organizational culture that creates positive change among the company, its customers, employees and communities. All aspects of sustainability and corporate social responsibility are important to implement—whether for an individual or a global business. With this in mind, Mohawk has set a path for the next century of believing in better.

Environment

Reducing Our Footprint at Mohawk
Across Mohawk, we are approaching the final year of work toward our 2020 goals, set in 2010, to decrease energy, GHG, water and waste-to-landfill intensity by 25%.

Health & Healthcare

Sewing Mohawk's Support for Medical Workers
As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, people and organizations everywhere are looking for ways to help however they can. As a manufacturer of carpets and rugs, Mohawk realized that we could put industrial sewing equipment to work to produce vitally needed medical gowns for healthcare providers.

Responsible Production & Consumption

Driving Waste Reduction Worldwide
Mohawk encourages our facilities throughout the world to pursue zero waste to landfill (ZLF) certification, which requires a plant to recycle or reuse 90% or more of its manufacturing process waste.

Energy

Dal-Tile's Superpower Energy Solution
The spray dryer at Dal-Tile’s Dickson, Tennessee, plant is the first in the world to be powered by microturbine engines, which makes for greater energy efficiency as microturbines automatically adjust generated power to match a facility’s load.
