Mercury Marine has been awarded a Green Masters designation from the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council, the 10th consecutive year that the honor has been bestowed on the engine manufacturer. The WSBC uses a range of categories to judge companies on its sustainability merits: energy and water conservation, transportation, supply chain and waste management as well as its community outreach, workforce and governance efforts. “We are honored to earn a Green Masters designation for the tenth consecutive year. This is especially gratifying considering how the bar is raised every year, making each successive year’s designation an even greater accomplishment,” said Mercury Marine president Chris Drees in a statement. The company says that its commitment to clean energy sources will expand next year and beyond; click here for the company’s comprehensive 2019-20 sustainability report.
