Milliken & Company Net Zero Targets Approved by SBTi

Milliken & Company, a diversified global manufacturer, announces its science-based net-zero targets have been approved by the U.N.-backed Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). 

“At Milliken, sustainability is a core value,” said Halsey Cook, president and CEO of Milliken & Company, in a statement. “Climate change is placing pressure on communities, on companies and on our planet. The time to take meaningful action is now.”

SBTi calculates that companies committed to cutting emissions in line with climate science now represent $38 trillion — one-third — of the global economy. Milliken is one of the first 50 companies globally to achieve approved science-based net-zero targets and joins a group of more than 1,300 companies that have made net-zero commitments using the 2021 SBTi Corporate Net-Zero Standard.

“Not all net-zero is the same, which is why Milliken commits to reaching real net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain by 2050 from a 2018 base year,” says Kasel Knight, general counsel and head of sustainability at Milliken. “By working with SBTi, our net-zero commitment, along with our approved near-term and long-term targets, has been fully vetted by the best available science on a global scale.”
