GE is one of the largest manufacturers of major appliances in the world. Since 1907, we have been introducing advanced appliances to improve peoples' lives. We're continuing that legacy today with energy conserving innovations like the Advantium oven, the Harmony clothes care system, and more. GE set aggressive targets to improve the energy efficiency of Company operations and reduce the Company's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Today, GE offers nearly 400 products from refrigerators to cooking appliances to dryers that meet ENERGY STAR standards. Our theory- less energy, less water, better results.
Co-ops joining our team have opportunities to complete innovative technical assignments in a variety of product areas including refrigeration, washer systems and cooking products. Our co-ops get to work on some of the newest innovations that will impact our environment. "Ecomagination" is our company-wide commitment to imagine and build innovative solutions that benefit our consumers and society at large. Some of these Eco-friendly products that our co-ops have contributed to are the GE Profile Harmony laundry pair, which delivers energy and water savings using a HydroMotion wash and new refrigerators with ClimateKeeper2 technology. The benefits of this experience extend beyond the exciting work assignments and competitive wages. We value development and offer several training opportunities to enhance students' technical and professional development including, communication skills and resume writing.
