Ethical Conduct

“The world rests on principles.” – Henry David Thoreau

We strive to do good because we care about and respect each other, our customers, and the world we share.

Ethics Count

Milliken has long understood that ethical behavior is not just the right thing to do, it is key to our sustainable growth and forms the foundation of our strong sense of purpose to do good. Our commitment to doing good goes beyond the notion of doing no harm to a concerted effort to do good by:
  • Delivering products that improve health and safety, improve lives and help support sustainability
  • Responsible manufacturing processes that help ensure the health and safety of our associates and that reduce our impact on the environment
  • Conducting ourselves with the highest ethical standards
  • Doing business with suppliers that agree to conduct themselves with the highest ethical standards

Leadership and Transparency

Milliken firmly believes that ethical practices will continue to drive our success as a company, which is why we do more than talk about doing the right thing. The focus, commitment and actions Milliken takes raise the bar for ethical standards and has earned us a place on Ethisphere Magazine's list of the "World's Most Ethical Companies" twelve years in a row, including 2018.
Milliken is proud of its reputation as being a leader and role model for ethical conduct, which is why we make our internal Code of Conduct and our Supplier Code of Conduct publicly available. We require that all of our employees reconfirm their compliance with our Code on an annual basis. Similarly, we expect our suppliers to uphold the ethical business principles of our Supplier Code of Conduct and the highest, applicable international standards.
