Mohawk Industries is among the top five Georgia companies for sustainability practices in the Southeast, according to the 2011 Southeastern Corporate Sustainability Rankings. The companies reviewed were selected from the largest 3,000 U.S. equities from Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. In addition to Mohawk, other Georgia companies recognized for exceptional performance included Coca-Cola, NCR, and UPS.

The annual rankings, founded by Mark Callaway Investments and GreenBusiness Works, evaluate companies on a variety of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, using information from publicly available sources. To be part of the ranking, companies must be publicly traded on a major exchange, headquartered in the Southeast, and have a minimum market capitalization of $100 million USD as of June 30, 2010.  

“Mohawk is honored to be in the company of world-class brands that are dedicated to making the Southeast a model for sustainable business practices,” said Bill Kilbride, Mohawk’s chief sustainability officer.

“We are very proud to see how well Mohawk has done in the rankings,” added Stephanie Armistead, GreenBusiness Works gm.
