Assuring a More Sustainable

Supply Chain through Certification

The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) is the leading certifier of printing facilities. SGP provides a sustainable foundation by promoting best practices, networking, and innovation among raw material manufacturers, converters, printers, finishing facilities, trade associations, and print buyers. SGP brings the business community together in the pursuit of a more sustainable supply chain. SGP certified facilities outperform those that do not validate their sustainable performance.



SGP Program, a non-profit organization, establishes the sustainability benchmark for printing facilities. Built on three pillars, economic, societal and environmental, SGP's certification program encourages printers to reduce their environmental impact and increase social awareness of their best practices in order to provide print buyers a more sustainable supply chain.



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 in the graphic communications industry through certification and continuous improvement of sustainability and best practices within manufacturing operations.
