Mohawk Honored by EPA for Green Power


COHOES, NY | Mohawk, privately owned manufacturer of fine papers, envelopes and specialty substrates for commercial and digital printing, and has been recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency “National Top 100 List” of Green Power Users for the 10th year in a row.

Said to be a leader in environmental and sustainable practices, Mohawk ranks 75th in the nation for green power use (as of 1/6/15) and has been named to the EPA 100% Green Power Users list for using wind power to meet 100% of the company’s electricity use. Since 2007, 100% of electricity used in Mohawk’s operations is matched with Green-e certified Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs).

The EPA National Top 100 list represents the largest green power users within the Green Power Partnership. The EPA Green Power Partnership is a voluntary program that encourages organizations to use green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with conventional electricity use.

“As a paper manufacturer, we have always understood that our dependence on basic resources such as water, wood fiber, and energy creates a unique responsibility for environmental stewardship,” says Michelle Carpenter, VP, Environmental and Energy Stewardship, Mohawk. “We continue to examine each aspect of our business with the objective of minimizing our environmental footprint in every way practicable. Environmental responsibility is at the core of Mohawk’s culture.”
