Egypt, approx. 2000 BC

The mission of the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) is to promote environmentally sound, socially beneficial, and economically prosperous management of the world’s forests.www.fscus.org. Mohawk grades that carry the FSC-certified designation meet the strict standards set forth by FSC. License Code: FSC® C002350.
Mohawk grades carrying the Carbon Neutral designation are made carbon neutral within Mohawk’s production processes. In addition to purchasing enough Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to match 100% of the electricity used in our operations, the thermal energy used in the manufacture of several grades is offset through the purchase of carbon credits that fund renewable energy or emission-reduction projects. These carbon offsets meet credible third-party standards. Through this process, Mohawk is seeking to manufacture these papers with a net zero climate impact.
