SGP certification benefits your printing facility in countless ways. Certification creates real cost and resource savings while differentiating your business in a crowded marketplace. SGP institutes a more accountable and complete sustainable supply chain—something more buyers are interested in. Going beyond single attribute certification systems, SGP provides for third-party validation of sustainability efforts, thus avoiding “greenwashing.” Certification by the SGP program offers a strong return on investment (ROI) by identifying operational improvements and waste reductions. SGP also sets facilities on the path of continuous improvement with ongoing benefits.
