Press release from the issuing company

Sayville, N.Y. – The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading authority in sustainability certification for the printing industry, announced today its participation in the Kansas City Sports & Sustainability Symposium on Aug. 17, 2021. The Symposium will be held at Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium. Attendees include regional professional and collegiate sports teams and venues, concessionaires, business and public leaders, and athletes to explore how the industry can make plays to advance healthier, more sustainable communities.

The program covers sustainability focusing on local action across environmental and social fronts. SGP Partnership will participate in the showcase of sponsors, highlighting the role of SGP certified printing facilities can play in the sustainability of sporting events and venues.

“I am looking forward to attending and sharing more with the Kansas City sports teams and the Green Sports Alliance on how using SGP certified printers can accelerate their sustainable contribution in local communities. With sport venues using a large amount of print including outdoor signage, arena graphics, packaging and event materials, SGP can helps align the sustainability goals of these teams in their print supply chains,” said Bryan Rose, SGP Board of Directors and vice-president at Cooley Group. “We can help make a transformative change by providing the sports industry printed materials with the best possible sustainable profile.”

SGP certification considers the entire print facility, its process, product, and social areas. SGP certification elevates a printer into an elite group of top sustainable printers, recognized by print buyers and the printing industry. SGP certification is supported by industry associations, including the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA), PRINTING United Alliance and TLMI.

Print facilities interested in eliminating waste, reducing energy consumption, transitioning to sustainable materials, and winning new business from organizations that require sustainable printing practices should visit www.sgppartnership.org/certification to learn more about becoming SGP certified.
