[Cohoes, NY] – Mohawk Fine Papers Inc. has recently received certification from Green-e for its paper grades produced with wind-generated electricity. Mohawk actively encourages its customers to use the certified/accredited Green-e symbol for projects that are produced on papers from its Windpower Portfolio. The Green-e symbol is held by the Green-e Renewable Electricity Certification Program and administered by the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS).
Green-e certifies renewable electricity products that meet the environmental and consumer protection standards established by the program. Because Mohawk produces the papers in its Windpower Portfolio entirely with wind-generated energy, those products meet the requirements for Green-e certification (custom orders or “special makes” made with windpower also qualify). The use of the Green-e logo provides consumers an easy way to identify products that have been produced with environmentally friendly renewable resources.
“There is tremendous value in displaying the Green-e logo — for our customers as well as for Mohawk. This is an easy way for our customers to clearly demonstrate their company’s sustainability efforts. For Mohawk the value lies in the endorsement of an independent third party, and a lead environmental organization,” says Mohawk’s Senior Vice President, Environmental and Government Affairs, George Milner.
Mohawk customers wishing to use the Green-e symbol may receive more information or request the logo by contacting their Mohawk Sales Rep or Anne Carlino in Mohawk’s Environmental Department at 518-233-6359 or [email protected]
