MarBorg Industries is a Santa Barbara
County Certified Green Business
In October, MarBorg Industries was certified as
a Green Business through the Green Business
Program of Santa Barbara County. Earning this
certification showcases the commitment MarBorg
has made to go above and beyond regulatory
environmental requirements. For decades MarBorg
has provided outstanding recycling services
to Santa Barbara County and is dedicated to
furthering their sustainable commitment by
developing policies and programs to reduce their
corporate operational environmental footprint.
Throughout the certification process, MarBorg has
developed and implemented an Environmental
Purchasing plan, an Integrated Pest Management
Plan, and a Green Cleaning policy. These plans
and policies assist with reducing operational costs
and reducing the negative environment impacts
associated with business operations and services.
In addition to the Green Business Program
certification, MarBorg Industries is pursuing
certification through the LEED for Existing Buildings:
Operations & Maintenance (LEED EB:O&M) rating
system. LEED EB: O&M is a green building rating
system developed by the U.S. Green Building
Council and is a third party verification process that
evaluates the operations and maintenance practices
of existing buildings. Certification as a LEED
building will distinguish MarBorg Industries as a
leader in sustainability and will provide measurable
strategies and calculations that meet and exceed
recognized sustainability benchmarks.
