Founded in 2008, Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) is an independent, non-profit organization providing a certification label for sustainability in the printing industry. SGP is the industry standard for the certification and continuous improvement of sustainability and best practices within print manufacturing operations.
Before its creation, there were no boundaries or parameters set as to what defined a sustainable printing operation. “Green” products were available, but this did not address the actual manufacturing process.SGP provides a benchmark for print facilities’ sustainability endeavors.
SGIA supports both the mission and goals of the SGP Program as an SGP Resource Partner and actively supports its members through the implementation process.
