Milford, Ohio based TLMI (the Tag and Label Manufacturer’s Institute) announces that it is merging its L.I.F.E. (Label Initiative for the Environment) certification program with that of the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership.
Launched in 2007, the L.I.F.E. certification is designed to help guide the tag and label printing industry’s environmental leadership by assisting converters and industry suppliers in prioritizing best sustainability practices and environmental stewardship.
The Sayville, New York-based Sustainable Green Printing Partnership is a nonprofit that provides sustainability certification in the graphics communication industry.
“TLMI is the only association that single-handedly creates a credible sustainability program for the print community with the L.I.F.E. certification,” says Marci Kinter, chairwoman of the SGP Technical Committee. “There has long been a mutual collaboration and support of SGP and L.I.F.E. certification. Now with TLMI merging L.I.F.E. with SGP certification and joining the other industry leading associations as a SGP Resource Partner, we anticipate a stronger, more sustainable future with integration of L.I.F.E. certification in SGP.”
TLMI President, Dan Muenzer, comments, “I am so excited TLMI has elected to broaden our environmental accreditation by merging our L.I.F.E. program into SGP. Our members have done a tremendous job developing the L.I.F.E. program and because of their efforts, broadening its scope to SGP will be seamless. Many thanks to our L.I.F.E. leaders for positioning TLMI to take this step.”
