Whirlpool announced that it has entered into a second wind Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (VPPA) with ENGIE North America to accelerate the progress towards its commitment to reach Net Zero by 2030. The contract includes 53 megawatts of clean, renewable wind energy over 12 years.

“Building on our long history of improved environmental performance, Whirlpool Corporation is accelerating our commitment to sustainable operations through investments like these VPPA agreements in off-site renewable energy, manufacturing plant retrofits, and ongoing energy, water, and waste reduction projects,” said Sr. VP of Corporate Relations and Sustainability Pam Klyn.

To meet its 2030 goals, Whirlpool Corp. is also maximizing previous investments in onsite renewable energy and making energy-efficient upgrades across its manufacturing plants.

“This project is an important part of our ongoing sustainability initiatives, adding clean, renewable energy to the electrical grid while helping to reduce the company’s carbon footprint,” said Whirlpool Corp. Director of Sustainability Ron Voglewede. “When this VPPA with ENGIE becomes fully operational in 2023, we expect to offset 100 percent of our U.S. plant electricity emissions.”
