Whirlpool Corporation & Sustainability

Whirlpool Corporation & Sustainability

At Whirlpool Corporation, we have a history of advances in sustainability founded on a simple principle: "Do the right things, the right ways. Always." In 1970, we became the first home appliance manufacturer to open an office of environmental control and we've been leading the industry in sustainable initiatives ever since. On average, the refrigerators, washers, dishwashers and freezers we make today are more energy efficient than the ones we made five years ago and 10 years ago. We’re proud to accept the responsibility that comes with being industry leaders in sustainability. Whether it’s in the development, use and recycling of our products, or the commitment we make to our communities, we’ll continue to do the right things for our customers, partners and the world.
