Mercury Marine’s 2018 Sustainability Report includes a supporting video that shows the company’s investment in protecting the environment, preserving energy, manufacturing, supporting its people and communities and creating a sustainable climate. The company says the report shows that Mercury continues to meet and exceed aggressive improvement goals in its sustainability initiative.

“We know the marine industry, with its dependency on clean air and water, is a natural priority for sustainability and we want everyone around the marine industry to know it’s a better place because we are here,” said John Pfeifer, Mercury Marine president, in a statement. “We don’t just want to be a marine propulsion business, we are a socially responsible business that makes communities here, in China, Europe, South America and around the world better; we think that’s important.”

Since Mercury’s first sustainability report in 2011, the company has continued to set aggressive goals. “Sustainability is important as we set out to pursue our goals and be a marine leader,” said John Buelow, Mercury Marine vice president of global operations, in the statement. “That means doing everything from having a positive impact on the environment, the products we develop and take to market are as clean as they can possibly be, how we operate our operations and protecting the planet and having a positive impact on everyone we touch.”
