Mohawk Fine Papers, headquartered in Cohoes, New York, is the largest privately owned manufacturer of premium printing and writing papers in North America. Mohawk has a longstanding tradition of striving for environmental excellence in all aspects of its business. Mohawk sets high standards for itself with regards to sustainability, and maintains a strong emphasis on environmental stewardship. The company's use of wind power Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) to match its electric requirements is a highly visible way to demonstrate this stewardship commitment. "As a paper manufacturer, we have always understood that our dependence on basic resources such as water, wood fiber, and energy bestows on us a special responsibility for environmental stewardship. Supporting the development of renewable energy projects through the purchase of RECs is a way of demonstrating that commitment," said George W. Milner, Senior Vice President of Energy, Environmental, and Government Affairs.
