Milliken & Co Lowers Indexed Emissions by 25%

Diversified global manufacturer Milliken & Company announced the company reduced indexed GHG emissions by 25% and increased renewable energy use to 100,000 megawatt hours (MWh) per year.

The company made investments in cogeneration, energy efficiency, and renewable energy procurement that are keeping the company ahead of schedule relative to its 2025 GHG and renewable energy goals.

In 2023,  Milliken used 109,141 MWh of renewable electricity, which accounts for 20% of its total electricity use and 6% of its total energy use. In 2023, the company purchased renewable electricity attributes from Montana (85%) and the United Kingdom (15%).  This represents a 10x increase from its 2018 base year renewable energy usage and a 9% increase from 2022. The renewable energy increase is driven by the purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs).

The company provided details in its sixth annual sustainability report, which discloses performance against its 2025 Sustainability Goals and 2030 net-zero targets. 

The company announced that five years of progress on GHG and renewable goals have helped Milliken achieve progress toward its 2030 Scope 1 and 2 net-zero targets.

Milliken also announced it improved its Scope 3 accounting to allow for a more detailed and accurate perspective on value chain emissions.

"Milliken's sustainability commitments are marked by steady progress — sometimes fast, sometimes slow, but always moving toward our purpose of making a positive impact for generations to come," said Halsey Cook, president and CEO at Milliken, in a statement. "In our annual sustainability report, we share what's working, embrace what we've not yet solved, and stand strong in our belief that meaningful progress is possible. This is no small task, and we recognize all who are on this journey with us."

Milliken used sustainability assessments to analyze all new products and made measurable gains in its multi-year commitment to address end-of-life challenges for plastics.
