Whirlpool Corp. Named One of the Greenest Big Companies in U.S.

Sept. 25, 2009
Whirlpool Corp. been named to the Newsweek Green Rankings, a list of the 500 greenest big companies in America. Whirlpool ranked 78th on the list.

“We are honored to be included in the Newsweek Green Rankings,” said Jeff M. Fettig, Whirlpool Corp.'s chairman and CEO. “Recognition like this is only possible because of the people at Whirlpool who make our long-term commitment to sustainability a reality.”

Nearly 40 years ago, Whirlpool established a corporate office for environmental control and, in 2003, Whirlpool became the world’s first appliance manufacturer to announce a global greenhouse gas reduction target. Recently, the company announced that by 2015, it will make all the electronically controlled appliances it produces – everywhere in the world – capable of receiving and responding to signals from smart grids.

The Newsweek Green Rankings are the first objective “green” analysis of America's 500 largest companies. Companies comprising the Newsweek Green Rankings were selected from among the 500 largest U.S. companies as measured by revenue, market capitalization and number of employees.
