When two companies share a similar vision about product transparency within the same industry people are going to take notice. Two companies serving the construction industry have announced they are teaming up to promote their green initiatives in an effort to increase environmental and health awareness of their products.
GreenWizard Inc., www.greenwizard.com, Mt. Pleasant, S.C., a building product-management solution for sustainable and green designs, and Mohawk Group, www.mohawkgroup.com, Marietta, Ga., a commercial flooring company, are jointly pledging sustainability in both product and environment, through a three-year Emerald Partnership.
Through the Emerald Partnership, GreenWizard and Mohawk will provide construction companies with product transparency by giving them the information on what ingredients are in the different industrial products they purchase and use.
With Mohawk Group leading the manufacturing of flooring supplies, products will have associated EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations), HPDs (Health Product Declarations), and Declare labels. By having a partnership with GreenWizard, the information about Mohawk Group’s products will be widespread to the design and construction community through GreenWizard’s search tools.
