The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) is a non-profit organization that certifies printing and packaging facilities’ and their suppliers’ sustainability best practices, including and beyond regulatory compliance. SGP advocates best practices and innovation among print community stakeholders, aligning the printing industry and its customers in the pursuit of a more accountable sustainable supply chain.
SGP is different than other certification programs in that it is a multi-attribute certification that was created by the printing industry specifically for the printing industry. It takes into account the entire print facility, its process, product, and social areas. SGP certification elevates a printer into an elite group of top sustainable printers, recognized by both print buyers and the printing industry. Printing and packaging facilities of all types and sizes in the United States and Canada are eligible to become SGP certified.
