Whirlpool recognized for company sustainability


Whirlpool Corporation has risen in the Newsweek Green Rankings to 50 and 82 on the national and global lists respectively. The rankings assess the environmental performance of the largest publicly traded companies in the U.S. and the world. This year, Whirlpool Corporation was classified as a “top-ranked company,” a designation awarded to fewer than 100 companies on either list.
Newsweek Green Rankings is one of the most recognized assessments of the world’s largest publicly traded companies when it comes to environmental performance. Both the U.S. and global lists take the following factors into account: Energy Productivity, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Productivity, Water Productivity, Waste Productivity, Green Revenue, Sustainability Pay, Sustainability Board Committee and Audited Environmental Metrics. Monetary Fines and Potentially Harmful Products or Services may deduct from a company’s final score.
«The people at Whirlpool Corporation – commented Ron Voglewede, director of global sustainability for the company – continuously strive to protect the planet by being more efficient in how we build innovative products that consume less energy. This distinction is a testament to our commitment to sustainability, which spans our supply chain and sustainable material sourcing initiatives, to our goal of sending zero waste to landfills, and manufacturing products that have a low environmental impact for consumers to use in their own homes. We are proud of all we continue to achieve in sustainability initiatives corporation-wide.»
