The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading authority in sustainable printing certification, is pleased to announce a new certification for suppliers to the printing industry. The “SGP Supplier” certification is the next step in the organization’s mission to further sustainability throughout printing supply chain.

The criteria for SGP Supplier certification is similar to the criteria for SGP Printers in that they specify the requirements for management and production operations that define sustainable practices encompassing people, planet and profit – the three Ps of sustainability. The draft criteria document, based on SGP’s successful printer certification efforts, defines the core elements of the SGP certification program including development and adoption of a sustainability management system (SMS) and best practices.

“The new certified SGP Supplier program has the potential to improve the sustainability of the printing industry dramatically,” said Jodi Sawyer, SGP Executive Committee, Flexcon representative. “Certified printers have far-reaching, positive environmental and social impacts. Now with our new supplier certification we will help extend that impact into the printing industry. Through the certification, suppliers will be productive and profitable while at the same time help provide a more sustainable future.”

The draft SGP Supplier certification criteria is open for public comment from Nov. 15, 2019 through Feb. 15, 2020. Interested parties can find the draft criteria at www.sgppartnership.org in Resources. Comments should be submitted to [email protected].
