Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) is expanding its certification activities to include Australia. Currently, Australia is one of the most forward thinking countries to address such broad based sustainability issues.
By taking this expansion step, SGP can offer Australian companies a sustainability certification based on the three pillar approach - economic, societal, and environmental - that also incorporates best management practices for printing facilities.
Marci Kinter, SGP chairperson says: “By approving this expansion of SGP certification, the Board recognises the need to develop one central certification standard for the graphic communications industry across the globe. We've heard this not only from the certified community, but the customer base as well."
Texas Aardvark, a textile screen printing company located in Sydney, successfully integrated the SGP criteria into its operation. It will be one of the first print facilities to attain certification in Australia. A dozen other facilities in Australia have also expressed interest in becoming SGP certified.
"It is so exciting that we have been given the green light on this program," says Pamela Mannell, general manager, Texas Aardvark. "Texas Aardvark welcomes the opportunity SGP has given us with its accreditation, and we look forward to a mutually rewarding association between SGP and our company."
