Publish date:

Evinrude received a Business Friend of the Environment award from Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, the state’s chamber of commerce and largest trade association. Evinrude was recognized for implementing an energy recovery system for its Outboard Endurance Test Center.

“Our engineers and development team are passionate about both power and environmental stewardship,” Nando Zucchi, vice president of marketing and international business development for Evinrude, said in a statement. “They have worked diligently to integrate the most advanced technology into our development infrastructure and E-TEC G2 engines to create engines that don’t compromise performance while being the most environmentally sustainable on the market.”

Business Friend of the Environment awards are given to companies that demonstrate achievements in sustainability, a commitment to environmental stewardship or successful integration of technologies that promote sound environmental practices that are also good for business development.

“Designing a unique, customized energy recovery air handling system did not come with the lowest initial cost, but it was overwhelmingly the right thing to do from an environmental perspective,” said Jeff Wasil, emissions and regulatory development manager at Evinrude. “The system performed well above expectations, and no natural gas was used to heat the Engine Endurance Center for an entire heating season.”
