Whirlpool Corporation has been included on the 2015 Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for its commitment to sustainability and natural resource efficiency. The annual review identifies the top scoring companies in 24 industry categories through a comprehensive assessment of economic, environmental and social criteria. «We’re honored to have received such an important distinction.» – commented Jeffrey Noel, corporate vice president, communications, Whirlpool Corporation. «With more than 860 million home appliances in the U.S. alone, there is a significant opportunity for the home appliance industry to make a positive impact on our environment. That is one of the reasons we continue to incorporate sustainability initiatives into everything we do, from processes to product development.».

Among the most significant green activities of the company, we can remind the introduction last year of the HybridCare™ clothes dryer under the Whirlpool brand, equipped with Hybrid Heat Pump technology and designed to regenerate energy during the drying cycle to reduce energy consumption while providing dryer speed and performance flexibility.
