Mercury Marine has earned Green Master designation from the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council for the fifth consecutive year.

Earning the Green Master designation places Mercury among the top 20 percent of nearly 200 participating companies. The Green Masters Program measures companies on sustainability issues ranging from energy and water conservation to waste management, community outreach and education.

Mercury Marine scored above the state average in eight of the nine sustainability categories. The company scored 599 total points, just six points shy of the maximum. The program average was 364.

“Manufacturing and operating our business in a highly sustainable fashion remain integral and important aspects of our culture and our actions,” Mercury president John Pfeifer said in a statement.

“We constantly strive to decrease our carbon footprint, minimize our use of natural resources and energy and implement programs and activities that benefit our employees and the communities in which we work and live.”
