Press release from the issuing company

Loveland, OH - The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership welcomes the continued support of Gold Patrons Durst and DuPont Packaging Graphics, as well as Mohawk Fine Papers, newly upgraded to Gold from Silver level. The continued support of these industry-leading companies demonstrates both their commitment to sustainability in the graphic communication industry and their belief in SGP's role in facilitating this endeavor.

Each of these businesses understands the importance of sustainability in today's marketplace and has chosen to support the SGP Partnership' leadership role of setting sustainability benchmarks for the graphic communications industry. With the synergies of like-minded organizations working together, sustainability certification is growing to become an adopted standard in the graphic communication industry," states Marcia Kinter, SGP Board of Directors Chair.
