We continue to make progress in alignment with our Net Zero (scopes 1 and 2) emissions target by investing in projects that increase our use of renewable energy and reduce our reliance on nonrenewable sources. In 2023, we were excited to attend the ribbon cutting for the official opening of our second Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (VPPA) site — Limestone Wind farm in Dawson, Texas, with 53MW of clean energy produced from 88 turbines. When fully operational, the two VPPAs are expected to generate sufficient renewable energy to cover 100% of Whirlpool Corporation’s U.S. sites’ electrical consumption. This year, we also entered into agreements with One Energy to add on-site wind and solar power at our Findlay and Clyde, Ohio, operations. When combined with existing turbines, these projects are expected to supply at least 70% of the plants’ energy needs. The solar and wind projects are expected to be online and operational by early 2025.

We also include water sustainability considerations in our business decision-making, by actually investigating opportunities for implementation and setting targets for our operations related to reducing water intensity in our plants.

Signed two VPPAs that are expected to cover
100% of the electrical consumption of nine Whirlpool Corporation U.S. plants when two wind farm installations are fully operational
Record Scopes 1 and 2 Emissions Reductions ~25% reduction in total greenhouse gas (GHG) (scopes 1 and 2 market-based) year-over-year for the last two years
18,000 total metric tons of CO2 eliminated from operations
~5% reduction in scopes 1 and 2 location-based emissions

We design products with both the needs of consumers and the planet in mind because we believe that enabling the business, our people and communities to thrive is part of the same endeavor. We work hard to live up to that high standard every day.”

Our Zero Waste to Landfill (ZWtL) approach to waste management represents a best-in-class approach to diverting waste away from permanent landfills. Beginning in 2023, we are implementing a new global procedure for waste management that will further elevate practices within our operations to reach our ambitious goals.

To reduce our environmental footprint further, we’ll continue to design products with the circular economy in mind, work with our suppliers, invest in renewable energy sources and help our consumers use our appliances in the most efficient ways.
