The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recognized Maytag Corporation with the Excellence in Energy Star Outreach 2006 Award for its contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by promoting energy-efficient products, services and/or homes. Maytag's accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington D.C. on March 21, 2006.

Maytag has been an Energy Star partner since 1997 and is being honored for promoting DOE's "Spring into a World of Savings" appliance program to advance consumer awareness and purchases of Energy Star-qualified appliances. The annual appliance promotion encourages consumers to remove old, inefficient appliances and, when making a replacement, to choose appliances that have earned the Energy Star rating to save energy and money.

"Maytag is honored by our partnership with Energy Star," said David Steiner, vice president of Maytag governmental affairs. "We know that through the use of Energy Star appliances consumers can save money and contribute to a healthy environment. We are proud to help raise awareness about energy efficiency through our efforts."

Maytag says it offers a broad laundry lineup with more high-efficiency washers than any other U.S. brand. The Maytag brand's entire line-up of dishwashers is also Energy Star-rated.

The Excellence in Energy Star Outreach award is given to a variety of organizations to recognize their efforts to improve energy efficiency and reduce pollution, resulting in significant cost savings. Award winners are selected from more than 8,000 organizations that participate in the Energy Star program.

"Partners such as Maytag are spreading the word about the importance of energy efficiency in all aspects of our lives," said Kathleen Hogan, director of EPA's Climate Protection Partnerships Division. "They are doing an outstanding job of promoting products, services, homes and programs that help consumers save money and importantly, help protect our environment."
