Whirlpool Corporation said today it was named to the 2006/2007 Dow Jones sustainability World Index (DJSI), an international stock portfolio that evaluates corporate performance using economic, environmental and social criteria. The DJSI identifies the top 10 percent of the 2,500 largest companies based on their sustainability performance. This year's DJSI includes more than 300 companies from nearly 25 countries. Sixty corporations are from the U.S. along with Benton Harbor, Michigan-based Whirlpool.

Companies are selected for the DJSI based on an assessment of general and industry-specific sustainability criteria, including corporate governance, environmental performance, labor practices, and community development. An external auditor verifies the analyses.

"We are proud to once again be recognized by one of the world's most comprehensive reviews of sustainable business practices," said Whirlpool Chairman and CEO Jeff M. Fettig. "This recognition is only possible because of the people at Whirlpool who make our long-term commitment to social responsibility a reality. Their actions personify Whirlpool’s values and have enabled us to make social responsibility a core part of our culture."

The DJSI is intended to provide asset managers with reliable and objective benchmarks to manage their sustainability-focused portfolios. Its results influence the investment decisions of asset managers in 14 countries for a variety of sustainability-driven portfolios – including mutual funds, segregated accounts, structured products, as well as an exchange traded fund that is listed on Euronext.
