Mercury Marine wins sustainability award
AFS Corporate Member Mercury Marine (Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin) received the Sustainable Process Award from the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council.
The award recognized Mercury Marine for sustainability in the company’s manufacturing of aluminum outboard marine engine blocks.
The company uses recycled sources of aluminum, which saves energy. They also use less energy when melting metal.
“We’re certainly not the only manufacturer to use aluminum in building engine blocks but, as this award attests, Mercury does stand out in how we strive to be environmentally responsible and derive the maximum sustainable benefit from our use of this material,” said Scott Louks, Mercury Marine sustainability manager.
