Is sustainability really good for business? We at Mohawk have proven the answer is unequivocally yes. We have seen firsthand that being a leader in the flooring industry and being able to leave a handprint — or net positive impact — are not mutually exclusive.

Mohawk believes in leaving a bigger handprint than a footprint. One of the ways we stand by this guiding tenet is through contributing to a circular economy and involving our customers from start to finish. Within our product manufacturing processes, we use post-consumer materials as our raw materials, which are then transformed into beautiful flooring products. Additionally, through our carpet recycling program, ReCover, Mohawk retrieves and donates old carpeting to nonprofit organizations, diverting flooring from the landfill.

But most of all, it was a year in which we took a long, hard look at where we are, and where we want to be, and our new leadership took action to ensure that we are on course to get there.
