The CEO and Mohawk Chairman Jeff Lorberbaum stated that in 2016, the company has enjoyed a certain level of success. However, financial success is only one of their goals. They aim to recognize the impact that the company has in all of the business aspects, whether it is for the environment or for their clients. Aside from the company’s passion and commitment to serve its customers better, they are looking for innovative ways to make their products better.

If you look at the year 2016 on the company’s report, there have been a lot of reengineering and upgrades that happened on that year. As a result, the company has seen a growth in its revenue for approximately $140 million. These savings are a result of making products that impact the environment in a positive way. There were innovations that used less intensive energy and there’s a significant reduction of carbon as well as paperless processes in the administration.

The company currently recycles about 7.1 billion pounds worth of products in a year. They have also reduced their water usage by 277 million gallons starting from the year 2017.

The company has recycled over 5.4 billions of bottles and turned about 25 million pounds of tires to doormats.

Many of these achievements came from the company’s aim to continuously make the environment better. They were able to find alternatives to decrease the garbage and the wastes that the company produces in a year. There is also a detailed approach on how Mohawk has improved on its vinyl flooring plant in Belgium.
