Whirlpool commits to 2030 net zero emissions target
Whirlpool Corporation today announced a global commitment to reach a net zero emissions target in its plants and operations by 2030.
The move will cover more than 30 of the company’s manufacturing sites and large distribution centres around the world, extending to all direct and power-related emissions.
The American appliance manufacturer has also committed to a 20% reduction in emissions linked to the use of its products across the globe by 2030, compared to 2016 levels. Whirlpool said this target has been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative, and builds on the company’s 60% reduction in emissions across all scopes since 2005.
“Whirlpool Corporation has a longstanding commitment to sustainability and we established our first office for sustainability over 50 years ago,” said chairman and CEO Marc Bitzer. “Our net zero commitment is an important milestone in our ongoing effort to improve life at home by protecting our planet and communities.”
