Going green isn’t just recycling your aluminum cans and cardboard, or being aware of how much water you use. “Green” can also be about companies, industries and communities working holistically with the environment in mind to be practical, innovative and dedicated to sustainability.
Green building is one key area, and Mohawk will be at this year’s Greenbuild Expo in Boston from Nov. 8-10 showing off our sustainable products. Greenbuild is the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. The event brings together industry leaders, experts and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building in their everyday work. It provides the opportunity for participants to visit with more than 600 suppliers and top manufacturers of the latest green building equipment, products, services and technology available in today's market.
Mohawk is a proud returning sponsor of this year’s conference. George Bandy, VP of Sustainability, will again open the Greenbuild Plenary, sharing Mohawk’s strides in sustainability over the last year. Bandy will speak ahead of the evening’s keynote, former President Bill Clinton.
And for the first time at Greenbuild, our residential division will be joining commercial, spotlighting products made with sustainability in mind as one Mohawk that is “all in.”

Lichen - Mohawk Group
Designed by Jason F. McLennan, the founder of the Living Product Challenge, and his team at McLennan Design, Mohawk Group’s Lichen Collection is the first floorcovering to achieve Living Product Challenge Petal Certification. Inspired by assemblages of multi-hued, multi-textured lichens and their regenerative role in our ecosystem, the Lichen Collection is on the path to give more resources back to the environment than it uses during its entire life cycle, having met the certification program’s water, place, health + happiness Petals.
