Milliken & Company Tracks Progress on Sustainability Initiatives in Fourth Annual Sustainability Report


Today, diversified global manufacturer Milliken & Company published its fourth annual Sustainability Report, a key reporting component in the company's progress toward its 2025 Sustainability Goals. In 2019, Milliken laid out 12 sustainability goals, focused on its people, its products and the planet, as a roadmap to achieving a healthier tomorrow. Guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, these 12 goals signal the company's commitment to sustainability in all forms.

In 2021, Milliken eliminated coal as a primary fuel after investing $25 million into cogeneration, which combines steam and power generation. Notably, Milliken also increased the diversity of its U.S. management team by 8% and announced that its entire flooring portfolio is now carbon neutral.

"Our shared purpose and our material science expertise make us uniquely Milliken," shares Halsey Cook, president and CEO of Milliken & Company. "We embrace not only our ability to make a positive impact on the world around us but also our responsibility to build a healthier future for this generation and generations to come."

Completed in line with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards: Core, Milliken's fourth report details the holistic sustainability progress made in 2021. These efforts include:

"The cover of this year's report is an image from the documentary, Everest, which details the dramatic true story of a team of four climbers who ascended the mountain," says Kasel Knight, senior vice president and general counsel. "Milliken and Polartec are sponsoring the 25th anniversary re-release of this film. For us, this story of teamwork, hope and perseverance was a natural fit for our 2021 report. Our goals are lofty, but working together, we know that we can achieve a brighter, healthier tomorrow."
