Cohoes, NY-based Mohawk remains one of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Top 50 Green Power Partners, currently ranked number 32 on the list, as well as ninth on the list of 100% Green Power Purchasers. Mohawk joins other leading renewable energy purchasers such as Intel Corp., Kohl’s Department Stores, Whole Foods Market, City of Houston, Dell Inc., Johnson & Johnson, Cisco Systems, Inc., Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, U.S. Air Force and the City of Dallas.

EPA’s Green Power Partnership works with more than 1,200 partner organizations to voluntarily purchase green power, reducing the environmental impacts of conventional electricity use. Overall, EPA’s Green Power Partners are using more than 17 billion kilowatt-hours of green power annually.

Mohawk has been named Green Power Partner of the Year in 2007 and again in 2009, and received the EPA's Green Power Leadership Award in 2005. Mohawk’s current annual purchase of 116 million kWh of wind RECs (renewable energy certificates) is enough green power to meet 117% of Mohawk’s 2009 electricity use. Mohawk purchases renewable energy certificates (RECs) from 3Degrees, Sterling Planet, NextEra Energy Resources, and Community Energy. Mohawk also offsets the thermal energy associated with the production of its entire Beckett Concept, Beckett Expression, Strathmore Script  and Strathmore Writing product lines.
