Mercury Marine, has been honored with its second Wisconsin Business Friend of the Environment Award.

The Business Friend of the Environment Awards highlights the actions Wisconsin companies are taking in the areas of pollution prevention, innovative technology and environmental stewardship.

“We are honored to win the Business Friend of the Environment Award for the second time,” said John Buelow, Mercury Marine vice president of global operations, in the release. “The validation-testing of both the V-6 and V-8 platforms have set a new benchmark in the marine industry relative to the reduced amount of raw materials required for their manufacture, as well as their fuel economy, emissions, and noise abatement.”

Mercury’s continued focus on sustainability has earned them a Green Masters designation for seven consecutive, according to the release. In June, Mercury’s Active Trim technology was honored as the Sustainable Product of the Year Award in Wisconsin.

“Fuel-efficiency, low emissions and a quiet engine are three of the many features that customers want in their outboard engines,” said Buelow. “Mercury’s V-6 models were 12- to 16-percent more fuel-efficient than their closest competitors at cruising speeds and the new V-8s are 8- to 10-percent more fuel-efficient.”

“We invest a lot of time and effort in our global sustainability efforts,” said Scott Louks, Mercury Marine sustainability and facilities project management manager, in the release. “Our 2017 Sustainability report outlined our goals and our successes, and we are well on our way to meeting and exceeding the lofty goals we set out to achieve by 2019.”
