Awarded the Whirlpool’s Integrated Supply Chain


For the third year in a row, Whirlpool Corporation’s Integrated Supply Chain organization has received the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay Excellence Award.
This award represents the EPA’s highest recognition for demonstrated leadership in freight supply-chain energy and environmental performance. The program recognizes just one percent of the EPA’s more than 3,000 top freight supply-chain partners. Whirlpool Corporation is one of 11 companies to receive the distinction this year, and was recognized in the large shipper category, which represents companies that move products more than 500 million miles annually.
Whirlpool is also included in the first-ever EPA SmartWay High Performer list.
The new High Performer distinction is given to SmartWay partners with top-ranked performance inefficiency and/or air quality performance.
«We are honored to receive this prestigious award from the EPA – said Alison Jones, senior director, Customer Fulfillment – and are proud to have earned it three years in a row,”. “We are driven by a strategy to ship our products as environmentally efficient as possible, and we appreciate that our strategy is widely recognized. This recognition is testament to our leadership and commitment to optimizing the environmental performance of our operations.»
