SGP Joins Esteemed Group of Members of Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council

Friday, January 23, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Sayville, NY - By becoming a member of the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC), the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) has joined forces with leaders from government, industry, academia, standards organizations and NGOs to develop a groundbreaking guidance program for leadership in sustainable purchasing. Public and private sector organizations will use the program to guide trillions of dollars in collective purchasing towards goods and services that simultaneously meet the needs of their organization, society and the planet.

SGP joins an esteemed group of organizations representing purchasers, suppliers and the public interest, including Best Buy, Fedex, Green Seal, Goodyear, JC Penny, Office Depot, UPS and World Wildlife Fund.

As a member of the SPLC, SGP will play an instrumental role in solving the biggest obstacle to sustainable institutional purchasing: a lack of standardization in how sustainable purchasing is defined, guided, measured and rewarded. The Council's Guidance Program for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing v1.0, now under development, will enable efficient sharing of best practices, solutions, training, benchmarking, recognition and policy efforts among organizations, sectors and regions.
