Mohawk Paper Company Reduces Footprint With Operations & Offsets

Mohawk Fine Papers sustainability practices reduce impact and offset remainder of environmental footprint

Find green business solutions
Mohawk Fine Papers has bought 100 million kilowatt hours of renewable energy certificates, allowing it to offset 100 percent of the electric power energy consumption at its New York and Ohio operations.

"We continually seek ways to expand our sustainable practices," said Tom O'Connor, Mohawk Fine Paper's Chairman and CEO, in a statement. "We're acutely aware that, as a paper manufacturer, we are part of an industry that depends heavily on energy, water, and other natural resources in the production of ephemeral, non-durable goods.

"Because of this, over two decades ago we embraced the concept of extended stewardship, meaning that we continually examine every aspect of our business with the objective of making our environmental footprint as small as possible," he said.

In May, the company announced it was moving toward carbon neutral production of four of its premium paper lines. In 2003, it began manufacturing paper with wind-generated electricity — a first for a U.S. paper mill, it claims.

Between 2001 and 2006, it reduced electricity consumption per ton of manufactured product by 14 percent, and lowered thermal consumption per ton by 8 percent.

Independently-owned Mohawk operates three mills with more than 175,000 tons of capacity and four distribution centers, according to its Web site. Its brands include Strathmore, Beckett, Via and BrightHue.
