Environmental Regulations

Environmental Regulations

SGIA is YOUR advocate before federal and state environmental agenices.  Since the late 1980s, we have been working to ensure that all regulations — air, waste and water, that are adopted reflect the technologies used by our industry sector.  

Over the last 20 years our industry has made great strides in reducing its environmental footprint. Current and near-term regulations, as well as pollution prevention and waste minimization practices, have contributed to this phenomenon.  

Regulatory initiatives governing air emssions remain in the forefront.  Several states, including California, Wisconsin, New York have developed and implemented rules regulating emissions of volatile organic compounds from the chemical products used by our industry — both screen and digital.  SGIA continues to work on your behalf to advocate the development of consistent regulations across state lines.

SGIA continues to keep its members updated on current state activities.  Contact Marci Kinter at with any questions.
