Whirlpool Corp Brands Most Sustainable Appliances

Whirlpool Corporation brands are at the top of mind of builders, architects, and other industry professionals when it comes to sustainability, according to a new survey.

Green Builder Media, a leading media company in the North American building industry focused exclusively on green building and responsible growth, published the results of its annual Readers’ Choice brand survey in the March/April 2020 issue of Green Builder Magazine. Among ten leading companies included in the Appliances category, Green Builder’s readers ranked Whirlpool Corporation first in sustainability.

“It is an honor to once again be recognized by Green Builder Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards,” said Kelly Safis, Whirlpool Corporation General Manager of Builder Sales. “Whirlpool Corporation has a proud history of environmental sustainability, and this award is a testament to our commitment to that legacy—both now and in the future.”

This year’s results mark the tenth annual edition of Green Builder Media Reader’s Choice selections. In the past five years, Whirlpool Corporation placed in the top two spots in the Appliances category four times.

In a special section titled “Industry Stalwarts,” Green Builder Magazine includes the following about Whirlpool Corporation:

From super-efficient induction cooking ranges to a vast line of energy-efficient refrigeration and water-saving laundry units, Whirlpool has earned its place in the hearts of professionals, exceeding the expectations of end-users. New products include striking innovations, including digital tools that make dryers smarter, cut water use even more for dishwashers, and “inject” detergent into clothes washers. Smart tech from a smart company.
