Report showcases traction on sustainability goals, community impact, and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

MillerKnoll, a global collective of dynamic design brands, has published its 2023 Better World report, detailing the company’s goal to design a better world through sustainability, community impact, and diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB).
