Mercury Marine Receives Environmental Award


Mercury Marine accepted a Business Friend of the Environment Award from Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, the state’s chamber of commerce and manufacturer’s association.

The group named the Brunswick-owned engine manufacturer the winner of sustainability in the large business category.

The company joined eight other small, medium and large Wisconsin companies that were given accolades in three categories — sustainability, use of innovative technology, and environmental stewardship.

“Winning in this broad-scope category is especially gratifying, because it is a recognition of all that we do to be kind to the environment,” Mercury sustainability manager Scott Louks said in a statement.

The firm has taken steps like adopting renewable sources of energy, cleaning up the environment, has begun using only recycled aluminum in its die-casting operations, and uses returnable and reusable packaging, said Louks.

“At Mercury we strive to make sustainability a part of everything we do,” said Louks. “It’s not always easy, it requires cost and effort, and that’s why this acknowledgement is so special.”
