The Environmental Management Plan update (EMP 2.0) reaffirms Mohawk’s commitment to reducing its impact on the environment, and ensures social and financial resiliency while providing opportunities to engage staff, students and the community in an ever-growing culture of sustainability. EMP 2.0 will continue to act as the leading policy document and blueprint that will play a vital role in Mohawk's future success, as the sustainability movement progresses from a grassroots movement to a global reality.
