Brunswick Appoints First Sustainability Officer

The company also released its 2021 Sustainability Report and announced it met several key goals.

Brunswick Corp. yesterday announced the release of its 2021 Sustainability Report and the appointment of Jennifer Koenig as its first chief sustainability officer.

“Brunswick is uniquely positioned to pave the way within the boating industry to implement sustainable, responsible business practices, which are highlighted in our annual report,” CEO Dave Foulkes said in a statement. “Additionally, we are thrilled to announce that Jennifer will be joining our team as our new chief sustainability officer, as she brings an impressive breadth of knowledge and demonstrated success building an effective sustainability program.”

Brunswick said Koenig most recently served as vice president of environmental, social and governance strategies at Stericycle, a provider of compliance-based solutions. She was the first dedicated leader to build a global ESG and sustainability program for the company.

Brunswick also highlighted several key accomplishments in its 2021 Sustainability Report, including:

• introducing and developing products that are expected to result in significant carbon emissions reductions, including the Fathom battery system that replaces gasoline gensets and several electric propulsion products coming to market

• earning an “Industry Top-Rated Company” designation from Sustainalytics, a global provider of ESG ratings and research, which assessed Brunswick to be at low risk of experiencing material financial impacts from ESG factors
