Whirlpool Corporation & Sustainability
At Whirlpool Corporation, we have a history of advances in sustainability founded on a simple principle: "Do the right things, the right ways. Always." In 1970, we became the first home appliance manufacturer to open an office of environmental control and we've been leading the industry in sustainable initiatives ever since. Today, our refrigerators are an average 22% larger, cost 75% less to operate and can be purchased for 35% less than the refrigerators built when we first started our sustainability efforts in 1970 - all while using less energy than a 60-watt incandescent light bulb. We’re proud to accept the responsibility that comes with being industry leaders in sustainability. Whether it’s in the development, use and recycling of our products, or the commitment we make to our communities, we’ll continue to do the right things for our customers, partners and the world.
