Whirlpool Corp. was on the Top 500 list of U.S. companies in Newsweek's Green Rankings. Whirlpool has been on the list every year since it started in 2009.

Whirlpool ranked 8th in the Consumer Products category of the 2011 list and ranked 285 in the overall list of the top 500 U.S. companies.

"It is an honor to be named to Newsweek's Green Rankings list for the third straight year," said Whirlpool Chairman and CEO Jeff M. Fettig. "For decades Whirlpool Corporation has led the industry in higher appliance efficiency standards, lower greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller carbon footprint. This recognition is a testament to these commitments."

Whirlpool offers more than 450 Energy Star qualified appliance models and estimates that the total production of washers, refrigerators, and dishwashers made by Whirlpool in 2011 will save consumers over $11 billion in operating costs over the life of those products when compared to old products being replaced.

Whirlpool has set a goal that, with common standards and appropriate incentives in place, by 2015 it will make all the electronically controlled appliances that it produces, worldwide, capable of receiving and responding to signals from the smart grid. In addition, as part of the company's four-year, $1 billion U.S. investment, Whirlpool Corporation's newest facilities are or will be LEED-certified.

The Newsweek Green Rankings 2011 measures the environmental performance of the 500 largest U.S. and 500 largest global companies, in terms of revenue, market cap, and number of employees. The list was launched in 2009 as the first objective 'green' analysis of the largest U.S. companies and evaluates their environmental footprint, management of that footprint and sustainability communications.
