What is SGP?The mission of the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership is to encourage and promote participation in the worldwide movement to reduce environmental impact and increase social responsibility of the print and graphic communications industry through sustainable green printing practices.
The printing industry is an important part of the world's manufacturing community. Print plays a vital role in communication, education, and daily existence. The printing industry has historically understood its effect on the natural world and accepts responsibility to continue efforts to reduce its overall environmental impact.
The SGP Partnership recognizes the following sustainable business practices as guiding principles to ensure continued viability and growth:
Printers can be listed as a certified SGP Printer by meeting a set of criteria to establish performance standards. The list of certified SGP Printers is available to the print buying community so that they can easily identify and contact "green" printers within their area.
The SGP Certification Criteria embody this principle. Sustainability is not limited to the environmental dimension. The scope of the SGP Partnership goes beyond environmental considerations to include "corporate social responsibility" and "corporate citizenship" elements.
