Why we focus on innovating with purpose

Whirlpool Corporation has taken an innovative approach to its social impact initiatives ever since its founding, 110 years ago. In 1969, our company boldly announced our responsibility to the environment when we were the first appliance company to open an Office of Sustainability. Our products and brands reflect not only those responsibilities, but understand that environmental responsibility is one of the things that matters most to our consumers.

A new study1 conducted by Whirlpool Corporation shows that consumers, when thinking specifically about home appliances, really want innovations that improve their lives at home. More than 19,000 people across 10 countries were polled, and we discovered that consumers in 2022 are seeking innovations that use less energy, have a lower carbon footprint, and save money and time.

The results also showed–cost and brand aside–that the most important feature consumers want in home appliances are energy and water efficiency, highlighting the need for sustainable products that don’t compromise on performance.

We visualize a home ecosystem with a conscience—a mix of smart home appliances and emerging technologies, that deliver energy, cost and time savings.

 

We also innovate in the ways we give back to communities across the globe

We also takes an innovative approach to our social impact initiatives, called House + Home, with the company placing energy-efficient appliances in homes through our long-standing collaboration with Habitat for Humanity International® and Homes for our Troops in the United States. A study conducted by Habitat for Humanity for Whirlpool Corporation showed that putting energy efficient refrigerators and ranges in low income households can result in a reduction of more than 20 percent in their annual electric costs for those appliances.2
