How we achieve success is as important as the success we achieve. A long-held core value of Milliken, ethical behavior is the foundation of our success in business, and furthermore, the expectation of every Milliken associate. We find ethical behavior sets us on a course we can be proud of and proves to be an ultimate differentiator in today’s global marketplace.
Through our work as a global innovations company, Milliken connects science with research and development to create products that enhance daily life. Those products, which you could come into contact with up to 50 times a day, may manifest in your life subtly to the point you aren’t aware of the potential impacts they can have.
Research and development can be a powerful tool for organizations. Connecting scientific, technical and creative insights to solve problems or enhance daily life is a credo that Milliken is proud to work toward every day.
This month marks the 48th anniversary of Earth Day, celebrated around the world on Sunday, April 22. Established in the 1970s when citizens drew attention to a healthy, sustainable environment, Earth Day has grown to highlight environmental and clean energy efforts.
