At Milliken, we strive to discover new ways to enhance lives and make the world around us easier, safer, and more beautiful. While we are proud of the environmental responsibility we have demonstrated throughout our history, we recognize the need for continuous evolution with goals that protect and improve our world. As a company, we have set a high bar for ourselves by publishing a set of measurable goals for 2025. These include Planet Goals to shrink our footprint, Product Goals to promote circular economies, and People Goals to care for our employees and communities.

Telling Our Sustainability Story
Long before it was a buzz word in everyday consciousness, sustainability was a cornerstone of Milliken’s operational excellence. Evolving from the company’s first-ever recycling policy established in 1901 to today’s holistic view of how sustainable products can positively impact our world, we have a long history of championing sustainable measures and challenging what sustainability can accomplish. We are excited to once again challenge the framework of sustainability by enlisting National Geographic to produce a series of custom articles in National Geographic magazine and website.Click to learn more
