For over 50 years, we have been committed to improving the environmental efficiency of our products and operations while making a positive impact on people and the planet. This week we proudly added another milestone along our sustainability journey with the issuance of our first Sustainability Bond. This milestone further advances Whirlpool Corporation’s global sustainability strategy focusing on actions to drive positive environmental and social impacts.
“Over the course of our 110-year history, Whirlpool Corporation has remained committed to designing and building products that exceed our consumers’ expectations while investing to care for our communities and the planet,” said Jim Peters, chief financial officer of Whirlpool Corporation. “We’re encouraged that there was such strong demand from investors and believe the issuance of the bond reflects on our core philosophy that sound corporate citizenship and environmental performance are good for business. We are proud to be a leader in our industry as we continue our constant pursuit of improving life at home.”
