Mohawk has published its first annual sustainability report, A Better World by Design, online at The report details the company’s focus on sustainable products, along with its people and practices that support the planet.

“Innovations that bring about positive change to our business, our stakeholders and our communities are the foundations of this report,” explained Jeff Lorberbaum, Mohawk’s chairman and ceo.

“It’s not simply about being green,” said William Kilbride, Mohawk’s chief sustainability officer. “We must ensure that the environment and all of our stakeholders benefit in the long run. That is only achieved through open and honest communication.”

“We felt it was our duty to provide our stakeholders with a report backed by solid documentation, and third-party assurance from an internationally recognized sustainability auditing firm,” added Jenny Cross, Mohawk global sustainability director. Mohawk enlisted FIRA, headquartered in the Netherlands, as the report assurance provider.
