Brunswick hires first chief sustainability officer

Brunswick Corporation has appointed Jennifer Koenig as the company’s first chief sustainability officer. The company has also published its 2021 sustainability report, Together for the Planet, highlighting its sustainability achievements.

The news follows Brunswick’s appointment of Alexandra Cattelan as its chief technology officer, who has over three decades of experience leading electric propulsion and advanced mobility programmes.

“As the world’s largest recreational marine company, Brunswick is uniquely positioned to pave the way within the boating industry to implement sustainable, responsible business practices which are highlighted in our annual report,” says Dave Foulkes, Brunswick Corporation CEO.

“Additionally, we are thrilled to announce that Jennifer will be joining our team as our new chief sustainability officer as she brings an impressive breadth of knowledge and demonstrated success building an effective sustainability program. I look forward to working directly with Jennifer as she leads our continued efforts to implement responsible and sustainable business practices and products.”

Brunswick recently released its report, Together for the Planet, highlighting its recent achievements in sustainability. Key examples include:

  • Reporting the lowest recordable incident rate in company history (for the second consecutive year).
  • Achieving zero-waste-to-landfill status at Mercury Marine’s Land ‘N’ Sea/Kellogg Marine warehouse, shipping and receiving operations in Old Lyme, Connecticut. The third Brunswick location to earn this designation.
  • Introducing Brunswick’s TIDE (Together: Inclusion, Diversity and Equity) programme focused on sponsoring DEI initiatives across the enterprise.
