The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Whirlpool Corporation with a 2015 Energy Star Partner of the Year award. The company received the award for its contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by manufacturing energy-efficient products and educating consumers about energy efficiency.
Among the most recent conquest of the company in this field, we can mention the launch in 2014, of the first ever Energy Star certified model of clothes dryers. Whirlpool has also won the Energy Star Emerging Technology Award for the most efficient clothes dryer ever to be introduced into the U.S. market, with the ventless Whirlpool brand HybridCare™ heat pump clothes dryer.
«Since Whirlpool helped facilitate the development of the Energy Star appliances program more than 20 years ago, we have remained committed to the growth, success, and integrity of the partnership. We are honored to receive this award,» said Nate Mouw, director of regulatory affairs for Whirlpool Corporation. «Whirlpool Corporation is proud to make innovative home appliances that help our consumers save money and energy while protecting the environment.»
In 1970, Whirlpool established its own Office of Environmental Control to develop more efficient products for consumers, develop more efficient manufacturing practices, and work with outside stakeholders on environmental and social responsibility.
