Improving life through House + Home.
Around the world today, 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing. And one-in-ten people worldwide live in “distressed communities”, experiencing a perpetual cycle of low-wage jobs, education instability, inadequate transport, and racial inequality. Helping to find solutions to these problems guides our approach to corporate social responsibility across the globe at Whirlpool Corporation.
We continue our 110-year history of using our quality appliances, our expertise, and our time to make a real, positive difference to our customers, in our communities and for the environment. Our work in this area revolves around two central pillars:
House and Home.
A HOUSE provides the blueprint for success in life. It’s a secure space to gather with family and friends and dream for the future and a first step on the journey to a better life. It’s why we give purposefully of our time, funds and products to the communities where we live and work. Our employees volunteer to build houses and improve housing adequacy alongside world-leading partners like Habitat for Humanity.
A HOME is so much bigger than a house itself. It’s the communities where we live and work; a place where people connect. That’s why we support resilient and sustainable communities through education and neighborhood development. We work with local businesses, government and nonprofits to help improve quality of life for all residents in our neighborhoods.
