Milliken & Company, manufacturing companies specializing in flooring, textiles, chemicals & healthcare solutions, announced its recognition on the 2024 World’s Most Ethical Companies list curated by Ethisphere, a leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

This annual recognition highlights organizations with an exemplary commitment to business integrity through robust ethics, compliance and governance programs. Milliken is one of only six honorees to make the list every year since the award was first created in 2007.

Guided by its core values and the ever-changing landscape of the communities it serves, Milliken undertook an extensive project in 2023 to better understand the needs and desires of its associate base. The company then formalized its commitment to Team Milliken with the launch of its Associate Promise, a commitment to building a better future by fostering a culture rooted in trust, intentional inclusion and diversity, and empowerment. Milliken’s Associate Promise echoes elements of Milliken’s overarching ethics and compliance program that strives to purposefully impact the world through a commitment to excellence and continuous improvement.

The World's Most Ethical Companies assessment is grounded in Ethisphere's proprietary Ethics Quotient, an extensive questionnaire that requires companies to provide more than 240 proof points on their culture of ethics, environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices, ethics and compliance program, diversity, equity and inclusion, and initiatives that support a strong value chain. In 2024, 136 honorees were recognized, spanning 20 countries and 44 industries.
