A Revised Environmental, Social, and Governance
(ESG) Framework

Following the refreshed materiality assessment, we redefined our ESG framework to align priorities across the three ESG pillars: Our ESG task force oversees progress against the framework, identifies and addresses challenges, enhances disclosure, and monitors emerging ESG trends. The task force provides reports of progress to our leadership team, the Board, and the Sustainability Steering Committee. The Sustainability Steering Committee consists of senior leadership from our product, sourcing, manufacturing, legal, government relations, communications and technology functions, and regional business leaders. The Committee reviews the results of Whirlpool Corporation’s Materiality Assessment and meets once every quarter to set and oversee the company’s strategic priorities and progress on critical environmental and social issues.
