Mohawk Makes Newsweek's "Greenest" List for Third Year in a Row
October 25, 2011,
DALTON, Ga.-For the third straight year, Newsweek magazine has placed Mohawk Industries in its annual ranking of the 500 "greenest" U.S. companies.
Mohawk ranked 292nd in this year's list, up from 350th in last year's list. The company finished ninth among U.S. consumer-products companies. Mohawk released its second annual sustainability report in July, which detailed the company's progress in implementing and achieving its aggressive environmental initiatives. The report helped earn high marks from Newsweek for disclosure, a new calculation to the magazine's scoring system.
A company statement said Mohawk diverts more than 3 billion pounds of material from landfills each year, and is "a leading provider" of renewable flooring.
