CHARLESTON, S.C. — July 22, 2014 — GreenWizard Inc., the leading Product Management platform of building product data and documentation for sustainable and green construction, and Mohawk Group, the award-winning commercial flooring company, are pleased to announce the formation of a three-year Emerald Partnership. The enhanced partnership will allow both companies to better promote the value and urgency of product transparency. The GreenWizard online tool enables users to search for sustainable product attributes, including the Living Building Challenge and LEED certification.
“The vision and commitment that Mohawk Group continues to demonstrate in furthering environmental and health awareness is significant,” said Jerry Lepore, CEO of Green Wizard. “They are leading the evolution of flooring products for the industry. This newly created Emerald Partnership strengthens both companies’ shared vision and commitment to product transparency.”
This three-year Emerald Partnership is the first in the history of GreenWizard. With the Mohawk Group taking the lead in the manufacturing sector with the largest and most varied selection of flooring products that have associated Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Health Product Declarations (HPDs) and Declare labels, and GreenWizard being the conduit for this information to the design and construction community, great things are expected to come of this partnership.
“We are delighted to join forces with GreenWizard and view them as a strong ally in the building transparency movement,” said Rochelle Routman, Director of Sustainability at Mohawk Group. “We love that architects, designers and building construction professionals can locate any Mohawk product in a few clicks using GreenWizard’s powerful search tool, whether it be a selection from our extensive list of more than 120 red list free Declared products, as well as products with HPDs or EPDs.”
GreenWizard is the only complete building product management solution for the design and construction community and the Mohawk Group has been a lead supporter of GreenWizard’s efforts since day one.
