Whirlpool Corp. was named to the Newsweek Green Rankings, a list of the 500 greenest big companies in America. Whirlpool ranked 78th on the list.
Nearly 40 years ago, Whirlpool established a corporate office for environmental control and, in 2003, Whirlpool reportely 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.
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.
