Milliken & Company Named One Of World’s Most Ethical Businesses

Spartanburg-based Milliken &
Company has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere magazine, a
Phoenix-based publication that sheds light on the relationship between ethics and profit.

Milliken, one of just 92 companies on the list, was recognized for its leadership in ethics
and compliance, advancement of discourse on social and ethical issues, and positive engagement in
the surrounding community.

Ethisphere conducted a lengthy process of selection, looking at companies’ codes of ethics,
litigation and regulatory infraction histories, investment in innovation and sustainable business
practices, and activities to improve corporate citizenship. The magazine also worked with consumer
action groups to gain feedback and rating, and studied nominations from senior executives, industry
peers, suppliers and customers.

“Milliken’s strong culture of business values and community values has evolved over 140
years of doing the right things the right way,” said Ashley Allen, CEO, Milliken & Company. “
This is indeed an honor for every person in our company. Our long-standing philosophy of making
money with people, not out of them, continues to benefit our associates, our customers and the
communities in which we operate.”
