Milliken named one of world’s most ethical companies

ALIGNING values-based business practices with an ever-present culture of integrity has fuelled continued success for Milliken & Company, a manufacturer which says it has expertise in specialty chemicals, floorcovering, and performance and protective textiles.

Now the company has been named among the 2019 World's Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere Institute, described as a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

An esteemed group of 128 companies, the 2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies marks out organisations which are influencing and driving positive change in the business community and societies around the world. Milliken is reportedly one of only eight companies to earn the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation every year since the honour’s inception.

‘It is with tremendous pride that I congratulate our associates across the world on earning this important designation,’ says Halsey M Cook, Milliken & Company’s president and ceo.

‘Ethical business practices have long been woven into our company culture and carried out by our associates. This honour upholds our belief that both individually and as a company we can make a positive impact with every action we take.’

‘I congratulate Milliken for, once again, being named to the World’s Most Ethical Companies,’ said Ethisphere’s ceo, Timothy Erblich. ‘Over the past 13 years, Milliken has helped highlight how a deep-rooted commitment to purpose-based strategy can equally fill a need within the business community while also advance the company’s overarching success.’

Milliken is one of 128 honorees recognised in 2019, representing 21 countries and 50 industries. ‘The 13th class profoundly illustrates how companies continue to be the driving force for improving communities, building capable and empowered workforces, and fostering corporate cultures focused on ethics and a strong sense of purpose,’ says the company.
