Milliken & Company Launches Green Initiative

Georgia-based Milliken & Company has launched an energy conservation initiative ­to reduce energy consumption. The company says that the initiative will increase awareness among associates to change practices at home and work; expand exploration of energy resources; apply technological advances to lower consumption; and register company facilities with LEED.

Georgia industries and businesses used about half as much energy to produce each dollar of Gross State Product in 2004 as in 1984, according to Milliken. During that same period consumption statewide still grew 76 percent and individual Georgians used 16 percent more energy per person.

Milliken says it will expand energy conservation activities and become pro-active with an energy audit at Milliken Floor Covering. Milliken associates are joining the ENERGY STAR Pledge with the CFLs provided by Georgia Power.

The company registered its corporate headquarters in Spartanburg and the Milliken Design Center in LaGrange with U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating system for existing buildings and its showroom in the Chicago Merchandise Mart with LEED 2.0 for commercial interiors earlier in the year.
