Milliken takes its environmental responsibilities seriously.

Sustainability

Milliken strives to create products that “do good” including recyclability. This type of product engineering supports Milliken’s belief that a truly good steward of the planet requires that you leave the world in a better condition than you found it. 

Milliken's Global Environmental Policy

Milliken’s Environmental Policy, adopted in November 1990, established a goal of zero waste to all media.  Our goal is the elimination rather than reduction of all solid waste, hazardous wastes and emissions. This policy guides environmental decision-making and calls for preferring all other means of disposal before using the landfill. To date, the company diverts 99% of all of the company’s waste away from landfills and to places where it could be re-used or recycled.  In addition, we actively seek and use alternative energy to power our manufacturing plants, such as methane gas produced by local landfills.
