Sharing Green Spaces
Our environmental stewardship extends far beyond the footprint of our buildings. Our 600-acre campus in Spartanburg, which hosts our corporate headquarters, is one of the largest corporate green spaces in the southeast of the United States and is open to the public. A nationally recognized arboretum and horticultural testing ground, its attractions include open fields, groves and woods, fifteen decorative fountains, six ponds and more than 500 different trees and shrubs.
Milliken & Company is committed to operating our plants and facilities in complete compliance with all applicable environmental regulations and other requirements and to operate in a manner that protects the quality of our environment and the health and safety of our associates and the public.
We are committed to strive for a goal of zero waste generation to all media - land, air, water - to be achieved by continual improvement in all of our operations. This goal will guide the conduct of our manufacturing operations, the development of new products, and our interaction with our suppliers and customers. Recycling of materials is an integral part of this on-going effort.
We are committed to encouraging our families, our associates and our communities, through education and leadership, to conserve our natural resources and protect the environment in our daily lives.
We reaffirm our commitment to work with local, state and federal authorities to develop effective environmental solutions that meet tests of practicality and feasibility.
