Cleveland Rocks

O-Me-O, O-My-O, O-Cleveland, O-hio! The Sustainable Green Printing (SGP) Partnership continues their roll: the City of Cleveland, Ohio—specifically, the city’s Division of Printing and Reproduction—has become the first government facility to achieve SGP certification. The division is the city’s 20,000-square-foot in-house print facility that offers design, printing (digital and offset), and mailing services to the city’s myriad departments, boards, bureaus, offices, etc.
“My vision is to create a significant shift in the way the City of Cleveland, its corporate citizens, and its residents operate and interact with the environment,” comments Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “By integrating sustainability principles into daily operations, we can save money, reduce our ecological footprint, and create a competitive advantage that benefits everyone.” The City of Cleveland regards SGP Certification as a public — and independent — validation of its considerable efforts to ensure the health and safety of its workers, the cost-effectiveness of its operations, and the responsible use of resources. This certification informs workers and the public alike that the City of Cleveland is committed to continuous improvement, accountability, and transparency.
Going Green congratulates The Forest City on its certification and thanks the municipality for its commitment to sustainability.
