Tradition of Ethical Excellence

For sixteen straight years, Milliken is pleased to be honored as Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies®

For the sixteenth straight year, Milliken & Company is pleased to be included on the Ethisphere Institute's World’s Most Ethical Companies list, a global leader in defining and advancing ethical business practices. We join 136 other companies from 22 countries and 45 industries—all united by their emphasis on leading with ethics in their respective fields. We are one of six companies to receive this prestigious ethics-based honor every year since the award’s inception.

Ethics and specifically our company value of integrity are embedded in the Milliken culture. More than 8,000 Milliken associates around the globe rally behind our purpose to make a lasting positive impact on the world. “All of us are engaged to find solutions. It’s key to empowering our teams to do the right thing,” said Jennifer Reid, who is Plant Manager at our Dewey facility and who was nominated by her peers to receive the Leadership Award as part of the 2020 Milliken Honors program for the way she led her plant through COVID-19 safely.

“Ethisphere and its World’s Most Ethical Companies program is a key benchmark for the way we do business,” shares 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.”

Our run as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies illustrates its commitment to sustainability, recognizing 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.”
