Whirlpool was awarded the 2011 Energy Star Sustained Excellence award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

"Whirlpool Corporation has earned EPA's highest Energy Star award - the 2011 Sustained Excellence Award," said Elizabeth Craig, acting director of EPA's Office of Atmospheric Programs. "Whirlpool Corporation's long term leadership and commitment to energy efficiency demonstrates the types of accomplishments that we can all achieve in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting our global environment. We look forward to their continued partnership and leadership."

This is Whirlpool's 12th top Energy Star award and sixth consecutive Sustained Excellence win. Whirlpool has received 23 Energy Star awards overall, more than any other appliance manufacturer.

According to a 2009 Whirlpool survey conducted with Harris Interactive, energy efficiency is more important than ever in the purchase decision of consumers shopping for major appliances. The majority of U.S. consumers (72%) said they actively look for the Energy Star label when making purchasing decisions. When asked what would be a part of their dream kitchen, eco-efficient appliances beat out other items as the top choice.
