Unisource Recognizes SGP Certification in TM Program
The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) and Unisource Worldwide, a distributor of paper, packaging and facility supplies in North America, have announced a collaboration agreement that includes recognizing SGP-certified printers in Unisource's popular respectTM program.
The Unisource respectTM Printers' program identifies sustainable-based printers that exclusively use papers that are renewable, recycled and maintain reforestation attributes
(FSC, SFI and/or PEFC Chain-of-Custody certification).
As part of this collaboration, Unisource will now list SGP certified printers on the unisourcegreenfinder®, an online portal used by corporate specifiers, designers and end-users to search for green certified printers. The unisourcegreenfinder® search tool is available in the paper area of www.unisourcegreen.com.
"This partnership enables both organizations to further our shared cause of promoting green, sustainable business practices," said Marci Kinter, SGP chairman. "SGP certified printers will benefit from a new channel for business opportunities and respectTM printers have an opportunity to learn more about the benefits of SGP certification."
