Milliken & Co. publishes second corporate sustainability report

Posted July 1, 2020

 

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Diversified global manufacturer Milliken & Company highlights its journey towards a more sustainable world in the company’s second annual corporate sustainability report.

 

The report gives insight into Milliken’s environmental and social commitments as all global locations work to achieve aggressive sustainability goals by 2025.

 

“Milliken is meeting the demands of a rapidly changing world,” said Halsey M. Cook, president and CEO for Milliken & Company. “We’re driving progress for sustainability, inclusivity, zero waste, safety and more for the betterment of the planet and our company.”

 

Using a comprehensive goal scorecard, the 2019 report shares Milliken’s first year of progress towards the company’s 2025 sustainability goals. First introduced in the 2018 report, these goals encompass planet, products and people, and range from zero waste to landfill to fostering an inclusive community that embraces authenticity in the workplace.

 

“Year one concentrated on laying the groundwork, solidifying our efforts and setting the stage for continuous improvement over the next five years of our journey, together,” Cook said.

 

Much of the progress made in 2019 forms a critical foundation from which to achieve wide-ranging positive impacts. Reducing indexed greenhouse gas emissions by 12.4%, joining the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, increasing diversity within manager-level roles, and tracking 15,055 volunteer hours within our communities are some of the notable achievements.

 

Each year, Milliken assembles a global, diverse team to analyze its performance and progress through the lens of where the company is heading next. Their efforts shape this annual report, which aligns with the Global Reporting Initiative framework and is a standard way for forward-leaning companies to share more about their impact on the world.
