Nine of the Whirlpool brand’s cooking appliances are among the industry’s first certified under the Association for Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) Sustainability Standard for Cooking Products. Seven model ranges and two built-in ovens received certification of the standard which was developed by an AHAM task force focused on developing new efficiency standards for 2015. The task force included Whirlpool Corporation among industry experts along with UL Environment, and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Group.
«We are proud to extend our commitment and leadership to sustainability by including cooking ranges and ovens,” said Maureen Sertich, North America sustainability lead. “Increased energy efficiency has been an important focus at Whirlpool Corporation for more than 40 years. This latest certification is exciting because it means consumers can find laundry, refrigeration and now cooking home appliances that meet the AHAM Sustainability Standards and can have efficient appliances in their home.»
