Unveiled at Greenbuild, The Mohawk Group’s LEED PLUS Calculator is a Web-based tool that allows users to search building products and calculate LEED points and other industry environmental ratings in minutes.

To use, customers can log onto the Mohawk Web site, select a product, then choose which system to rate it against: LEED, CHPS (Collaborative For High Performance Schools), GGHC (Green Guide For Healthcare), or LABS21 (Laboratories For The 21st Century). Users also can check compliance for prevalent third-party certifications. Results are delivered via a PDF report; users can save their reports and use them as supplemental product documentation to be included along with LEED or equivalent certification submissions.
