Milliken, a global innovation company with textile, specialty chemical, and manufacturing expertise, has announced that its specialty interiors business, has extended its sustainability leadership by recently joining the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC). The company has also been honoured by Unifi as a Repreve Champion of Sustainability.

Milliken Specialty Interiors has joined the SFC as a qualifying member, pending successful application for higher-level recognition. The SFC shares Milliken’s commitment to taking immediate steps to minimise carbon emissions, reduce other pollutants, and remove unsustainable materials and chemical inputs from furnishings product platforms. The organisation exists to raise awareness and expand the adoption of environmentally sustainable practices across the home furnishings industry. SFC also provides a symbol of assurance for consumers.

The Unifi Repreve Champions of Sustainability awards celebrate Unifi’s brand and textile partners that share in its commitment to sustainability and vision for a better tomorrow. They recognise companies that exemplify leadership in sustainability and have helped recycle more than 11 billion plastic bottles as a result of their use of Repreve performance fibres.

Jennifer K. Harmon, vice president, Milliken Specialty Interiors said, “Milliken’s focus on natural, recycled, and easily recyclable materials is part of our overall sustainability journey to improve product design, manufacturing and sourcing practices. We look forward to working closely with the SFC and other concerned parties to build on our proud legacy of environmental stewardship and leadership.” (GK)
