In a step to support global sustainability initiatives, Milliken & company has announced that it joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative, a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices. The company is a leading, diversified industrial manufacturer, headquartered in the US.

The commitment to responsible business action, undertaken by thousands of companies globally, reaffirms Milliken’s purpose to positively impact the world for generations to come, the company said in a press release.

“Milliken’s sustainability commitments are now aligned with the global community. As we implement our 2025 sustainability goals and conduct business with integrity and care, we know first-hand that doing the right thing and profitability are not mutually exclusive. By joining the UN Global Compact, we take the next step to strengthen sustainability at Milliken and around the world,” Halsey M. Cook, president and CEO for Milliken said.

The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. By signing the UN Global Compact and detailing actions in its sustainability report, Milliken commits to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including solutions for the plastics end-of-life challenge.

Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 9,500 companies and 3,000 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries.
