Marine Group Boat Works (MGBW) is a familyowned boatbuilding and repair company with two shipyards in San Diego and one boatyard Los Cabo. MGBW’s commitment to sustainability is driven by its desire to be a zeroemission, low impact boatbuilder. It recently installed a 500kW solar panel system making it the first boatbuilder to use solar energy to construct boats. MGBW also reclaims 100 percent of storm water runoff, sandblasting and painting are done in enclosures where all air emissions and dust are recaptured and when possible, recycled. For the transportation of labor and materials between both of its San Diego facilities, a fleet of electric vehicles and forklifts further reduces the shipyard’s carbon footprint.
