The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading certification authority in sustainable printing, announced today that the Printing Industry of the Carolinas joined the SGP community as a Resource Partner.


SGP Resource Partners are non-profits, NGO’s or educational institutions engaged in promoting, teaching or researching in the areas of graphic arts and/or sustainability. Resource Partners are subject matter experts that assure our entire community is empowered with the acumen to advance sustainability in the printing industry supply chain.
