FOND DU LAC, Wis. (Dec. 13, 2017) — Mercury Marine’s commitment to sustainability has earned the company the “Green Masters” designation from the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council for the seventh consecutive year.
Earning the Green Master designation places Mercury among the top 20 percent of the approximately 200 participating companies. In 2017, Mercury received a sustainability score of 643 points, well above the necessary story to retain its Green Master status.
The Green Master Program measures companies on a broad range of sustainability issues ranging from energy and water conservation to waste management, community outreach and education.
“We are honored to receive a Green Masters designation for the seventh consecutive years,” said Scott Louks, Mercury Marine sustainability and facilities project management manager. “We emphasize sustainability in everything we do from our processes to our people and it takes a commitment from all 6,200 global employees to meet and exceed our goals. We have robust plans for the future and I’m confident that we will continue to lead the way in the marine industry and effect significant growth in sustainability.”
Mercury Marine recently released its 2017 Sustainability Report which details the company’s progress towards its key pillars of energy, environment, products and people.
