Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recognized Whirlpool Corp. for committing to reduce portfolio-wide greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50 percent within 10 years and to work with the DOE to share successful solutions and decarbonization strategies. As a collaborator with DOE’s Better Climate Change, Whirlpool Corp. is one of more than 80 organizations across the U.S. economy that are stepping up to the Challenge and driving real-world action toward a low-carbon future.

“Better Climate Challenge partners like Whirlpool are committing to decarbonize across its portfolio of buildings, plants, and fleets and share effective strategies to transition our economy to clean energy,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “Whirlpool Corporation’s leadership and innovation are crucial in our collective fight against climate change while strengthening the U.S. economy.”

The Better Climate Challenge is the government platform that provides transparency, accountability, technical assistance, and collaboration to identify decarbonization pathways and provide recognition for leadership across the US economy. This Challenge builds on over a decade of DOE experience through the Better Buildings Initiative. Through Better Buildings, DOE partners with public and private sector organizations to make commercial, public, industrial, and residential buildings more efficient, thereby saving billions of dollars on energy bills, reducing emissions, and creating thousands of jobs.
