What is Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP)?
We’re very proud to announce that in July 2011, we accomplished SGP (Sustainable Green Printing Partnership) certification. The journey has taken us two years to complete The criteria is more comprehensive than other chain of custody registrations. SGP differs from FSC and SFI because it goes well beyond forestry practices. We’re excited to be part of a movement based on social responsibility and a mission to increase awareness within the printing industry regarding sustainability.
From our solar panels to our energy efficient lighting, we have been hard at work to improve the way we work and invest in our future. Currently, our project for 2011 and 2012 will be to improve the efficiency of our trucking procedures and the reduction of waste as well as the possible installation of another solar roof.
As of March, 2012, Sentinel is one of only 36 certified SGP firms within the US and Canada. For more information regarding the best practices of an SGP printer, please visit www.sgppartnership.org or just give me a call.
