WHO WE ARE: SUSTAINABILITY
Consistent with our Brand Purpose of 'Weaving a Better World', we at 1888 Mills believe that it is our responsibility to our stakeholders and the economic regions where we operate, to drive innovation in the global marketplace by executing initiatives that promote environmental stewardship and contribute to poverty reduction.
Our framework for sustainability encompasses environmental and social objectives within our business that impact our world. With our 15,000 associates, we have a profound influence on the communities we serve through the promotion of education, technology, health care and job creation.
1888 Mills has adopted a Triple Bottom Line approach to measure our success: People, Planet, and Prosperity. We continually strive for improvements in our processes through Lean Six Sigma, Waste Management and an Environmental Management Policy. Recognizing that sustainability is multifaceted, our product lines promote energy savings, as well as environmental and social responsibility. Our packaging concepts continually push the envelope and have resulted in a 50% reduction of PVC, polyethylene and other harmful chemicals. Throughout the value chain, we wholeheartedly embrace the philosophy of 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle'.
