Milliken & Company has been recognised by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as one of the 2022 World’s Most Ethical Companies. The diversified global manufacturer, with more than 60 locations and approximately 8,000 associates worldwide, is one of six companies to receive this prestigious ethics-based honour every year since the award’s inception.
‘Ethisphere and its World’s Most Ethical Companies programme is a key benchmark for the way we do business,’ says Halsey Cook, president and ceo for Milliken & Company. ‘Receiving this recognition for 16 straight years underscores the culture and commitment of Milliken team members globally. It’s who we are.’
In 2022, 136 honourees were recognised, spanning 22 countries and 45 industries. Milliken is one of seven industrial manufacturers. Grounded in Ethisphere’s proprietary Ethics Quotient, the World’s Most Ethical Companies assessment process includes more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives to support a strong value chain. The process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify the leading practices of organisations across industries and around the globe.
Milliken’s run as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies illustrates its commitment to sustainability, recognising that ethics anchors the company’s long-term success for all stakeholders.
‘Congratulations to Milliken for achieving recognition as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the 16th time,’ said Ethisphere CEO Timothy Erblich. ‘We commend the entire Milliken team for this truly significant achievement and their commitment to driving positive, lasting change by intentionally creating a culture of ethics and purpose.’
