SPG Partners with Canopy
The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), which is organized by Printing Industries of America to develop audited environmental standards for North American printers, has formed an alliance with Canopy of Vancouver, British Columbia.
According to SGP, having a policy with Canopy “fulfills the sustainability policy and exceeds the responsible materials sourcing components of SGP’s Certification Criteria.” Canopy is an non-profit organization that promotes the use of environmentally progressive papers, while helping printers and publishers institute forward-looking supply-chain policy.
“Canopy is pleased to have formed this alliance with SGP because we provide the framework for leading paper purchasing policies that support endangered forest conservation and the development of the most environmentally friendly paper. We are happy to support printers throughout North America in implementing this vision,” stated Neva Murtha, 2nd Harvest/Printer/Magazine Campaigner for Canopy.
The SGP and Canopy relationship will be front and centre on September 8 when the two organizations cohost a free Webinar, entitled “Endangered Forests and the Lacey Act, What Printers Can Do to Minimize Risk.”
