Embedded in Whirlpool Corporation and its Board of Directors is a deeply-held value that has guided the company since its beginning: There is no right way to do a wrong thing. This basic code of conduct underlies the company's long tradition of strong and independent corporate governance.

Whirlpool Corporation's Board of Directors is comprised of 12 directors, ten of whom are independent directors who are highly-regarded individuals with broad and deep business experience and with significant and relevant management experience. The Whirlpool board's principles and processes—which include internal annual reviews of board practices, the board selection process and the company's Code of Ethics—have been in place for many years.

Whirlpool fully supports the steps that have been taken by business and government to ensure that companies have the necessary values and governing principles that will assure trust from all stakeholders.

Whirlpool is fortunate to have an experienced leadership team to recruit, mentor and guide its global and diverse work force. These men and women conduct Whirlpool Corporation's global business in keeping with the company's vision, values and standards of behavior.
