The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), a certification authority in sustainable printing, announces that the printing affiliate organization Printing Industries Association Inc. of Southern California (PIASC) has joined the SGP community as a resource partner.
SGP resource partners are nonprofit, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and educational institutions promoting, teaching, or researching graphic arts and/or sustainability. Resource partners are experts who assure the entire print community can advance sustainability in the supply chain.
“Most of our members are concerned with our environment. SGP is more than a certification; it is a way of life. As a resource partner, PIASC can help our members who are looking into SGP certification,” says Lou Caron, PIASC president/CEO. “We also want to advocate this sustainable mission and promote certification to our members.”
“Having organizations like PIASC become SGP resource partners strengthens our efforts to encourage sustainability throughout the print supply chain,” adds Doreen Monteleone, SGP co-founder, treasurer, and Flexographic Technical Association representative. “SGP works with its resource partners to spread the word about the benefits of sustainable business practices and validate the efforts of printers of all print processes.”
PIASC has members in California, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Wyoming. PIASC supports and advocates for the graphics industry and is devoted to helping its members succeed.
