Life Cycle Assessment principals look at more than just single attributes such as recycled content. The entire life span of a product is considered, from cradle to cradle.
Mohawk carpets are rated by the NSF 140 Standard - the first multi-attribute, non-proprietary, third party standard based on Life Cycle Assessment principles solely for carpet. It is designed as a system with varying levels of certification to define more sustainable carpet products. It allows for a streamlined approach for product evaluation assessing the entire impact of a carpet’s life cycle.
