Subject: The Benefits of SGP Certification


What are the benefits of Sustainable Green Printing Certification?
Now more than ever, clients are looking for a printer who will not only provide high quality work with a fast turnaround, but also one that is environmentally responsible. A certification by the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership sends the best signal to customers looking for a sustainable printer to let them know they have a committed partner.

How will SGP certification affect your environmental impact? George B. Glisan, Ph.D., recently conducted a survey of SGP printers across North America. SGP-certified printers have a reduced environmental impact. This includes lower air pollution emissions, lower energy and water consumption, and an increase in recycled materials, thus reducing operating costs. Plus, 42% of respondents reported that new client acquisitions were higher since certification.

There are six main components to becoming an SGP-certified printer:
• EHS regulatory compliance
• Sustainability management system
• Mandatory best practices
• Social aspects
• Metrics system
• Annual progress report
