Sustainability Resources

Today’s global marketplace requires you to differentiate yourself from the competition, and sustainability can be the ticket that sets you apart. Investing in sustainability is not only a sound business practice but implementing sustainable business practices can reduce your overhead costs and improve your environmental footprint!

Encouraging the incorporation of profitable, sustainable business practices — through the use of innovative manufacturing methods, systems and materials that help to reduce the environmental footprint — is the backbone of SGIA’s sustainability efforts. Adoption and integration of these practices plays a central role in the continuing growth and success of the imaging marketplace, and allows us to responsibly provide for future generations.

To avoid the stigma of “greenwashing,” SGIA supports and endorses the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership Program as the certification program that recognizes adoption of sustainable business practices within our industry sector.

SGIA has resources and programs to help start you on your journey. Contact Marci Kinter at Government Affairs to learn how you can become a sustainable organization!
