Whirlpool Corp. was the founding sponsor of the Alliance to Save Energy's first Energy Efficiency Global Forum & Exposition (EE Global), in Washington, D.C., bringing together leaders from the five regions of the world to forge new partnerships and develop strategies on energy efficiency.

Jeff M. Fettig, Whirlpool Chairman and CEO and the co-chair of the event, delivered a keynote address focusing on the company's leadership and the importance of energy efficiency in the appliance industry. Others speaking at the forum include the Honorable Samuel Bodman, U.S. Secretary of Energy; James R. Leape, General Manager, World Wildlife Fund; James E. Rogers, Chairman and CEO, Duke Energy; Colin Dyer, CEO, Jones Lang LaSalle; the Honorable Mark Pryor, U.S. Senate; and the Honorable Georgina Kessel, Mexico's Secretary of Energy.

Whirlpool has an "across the board" focus to energy and water conservation, from design to manufacturing and distribution to end-of-product lifecycle. The company focuses its efforts on several key areas: manufacturing, including the discontinued use of volatile organic compound (VOC) paints and the elimination of emissions from solvents; product distribution, including its partnership with SmartWay Transport, a collaboration between the EPA and the freight industry to increase energy efficiency while reducing carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide; and end-of-life management, including the fact that 85% to 90% of materials (steel and other metals, some plastics) used in Whirlpool products can be recycled.
