From the executive suite and board room to the front lines every day, Benton Harbor-based Whirlpool Corporation continues to maintain a longstanding commitment to corporate responsibility and is once again recognized as one of the best in the world in that realm.
Whirlpool has earned a rank among the top 50 companies on the newly published 2019 Global CR RepTrak. That annual study, conducted by the Reputation Institute, recognizes the 100 companies with the best corporate responsibility reputations in the world. This marks the seventh consecutive year that Whirlpool Corporation has appeared on the Global CR RepTrak 100 ranking.
Chairman & CEO Marc Bitzer says, “This is a recognition we are honored and proud to receive, and is a reflection of the values and practices we bring to our work every day.” Bitzer adds, “From the appliances we manufacture and the people who build them, to the company culture we foster and the contributions we make to the communities we call home, we are in constant pursuit of improving life at home for consumers, with sustainable and responsible business practices at the forefront of our approach.”
Whirlpool advanced 13 spots on the 2019 Global CR RepTrak from the previous year, ranking 34th out of the total 100 companies listed.
The Global CR RepTrak measures perceptions of a company’s key drivers of corporate responsibility, including Citizenship, Governance and Workplace, and assesses its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) credentials. The study is based on more than 230,000 ratings collected from the general public representing 15 economies.
This ranking is the latest in a series of accolades that Whirlpool Corporation has received in the past several months. Most recently, the company was included on the distinguished 2019 Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index, named a leading company on the 2019 Diversity Best Practices Inclusion Index, scored a perfect 100-percent on the 2019 Disability Equality Index, and ranked a top Corporate Citizen by CR Magazine.
