For 110 years, improving life at home has always been at the heart of our business. We are fiercely committed to developing innovative products that save time and effort for our consumers. From our introduction of the first electric wringer washer and first stand mixer in the early 1900s to our full line of energy- and water-efficient products and our leadership in connected appliances today, we relentlessly reinvent ourselves to bring purposeful innovation to homes across the socioeconomic range, in all regions around the world.
Throughout our journey of expansion and growth, our focus on driving a culture deeply rooted in Our Enduring Values has not changed. We remain resolutely determined to doing the right things the right way. From Our Integrity Manual and Supplier Code of Conduct (SCoC) to board oversight of environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and strategy, we have a steadfast commitment to sound corporate governance and ethics.
These deeply rooted values of integrity and respect drive our commitment to our employees and to the communities in which we operate. We strive to provide a collaborative, safe and welcoming environment to ensure that Whirlpool is the best place to work and a place where our employees truly feel welcomed, valued, heard and respected. Additionally, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life for all who reside in the communities in which we operate.
With a vision anchored on improving life at home, we continue to focus on incorporating purposeful innovation into our products, identifying new ways to lessen our environmental impact, support our consumers, our employees and our communities, all while delivering significant, long-term value to our consumers and investors.
