Mercury Marine, a division of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC), today accepted a Business Friend of the Environment Award from Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC), the state's chamber of commerce and manufacturers association. During a ceremony at its headquarters in Madison, WMC named Mercury the award winner in the Sustainability - Large Business category. WMC has presented its Business Friend of the Environment awards to Wisconsin businesses annually for the past 32 years.

Eight other Wisconsin businesses joined Mercury in receiving honors this year, as WMC conferred awards to a small-, medium- and large sized business in each of three categories: Sustainability, Use of Innovative Technology and Environmental Stewardship.

Scott Louks, Mercury sustainability manager, accepted the award on the company's behalf and expressed his pleasure at his company's win in the category that considers all elements of sustainability.

"Winning in this broad scope category is especially gratifying, because it is a recognition of all that we do to be kind to the environment," Louks said. "From adopting renewable sources of energy, to cleaning up the environment, to using only recycled aluminum in our die casting operations, to manufacturing fuel efficient and low emissions engines, to using returnable and reusable packaging, to making people's lives better and so much more — at Mercury we strive to make sustainability a part of everything we do. It's not always easy, it requires cost and effort, and that's why this acknowledgement is so special."

In promoting the award, WMC cited a goal "to demonstrate to state policymakers, businesses and the public that sound environmental practices are good for Wisconsin and its business environment."

At today's awards ceremony, WMC Director of Environmental & Energy Policy Craig Summerfield elaborated on that theme. "Wisconsin's economy depends on industry leaders who go above and beyond to use sustainable and environmentally friendly business practices," he said. "WMC is proud to recognize these companies who prioritize environmental protection as they grow their businesses and build Wisconsin's future."
