The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading authority in sustainable printing certifications, is pleased to share the success of its most recent community event. Sustainability Lunch and Learn: An SGP Community Event was hosted by REI in Seattle, Washington on Jan. 15, 2020.
Members of the SGP community, printing companies and brands came together to further their education and awareness on sustainable print and the importance of SGP as a critical element in the print supply chain. Brian Hart, Hart Consulting, opened the session by calling attention to the history of the program. Attendees heard from REI’s Suzanna Eversole, manager print production, and Dan Maygra, supervisor printing services, on both their certification journey for their in-house print facility and their use of the SGP criteria as the benchmark for their internal printing operation and outsourced print purchases.
Todd Ebersole, co-owner and strategy director, Forge Graphic Works, spoke to the importance of not only the certification but the SGP program elements to his facility. “Even if SGP certification was not requested by my client base, we would still continue with the program. It is not only the right thing to do, but we continually see operational savings through certification,” stated Ebersole.
Speaking to the SGP certification process, Marci Kinter, vice president – government affairs, Specialty Graphic Imaging Association, stated “The SGP program is gaining momentum and further recognition in both the print and buying community. This program provides companies with not only the structure but also the validation for actions taken.”
SGP will be sponsoring additional regional SGP Community Events.
