Two Companies Earn SGP Certification

(February 2013) posted on Tue Jan 29, 2013

To achieve this certification, SGP requires a facility to set annual sustainability objectives and goals.


Douglass Screen Printers, Inc. and Forge Graphic Works have earned certification from the Sustainable Green Printing (SGP) Partnership. To achieve this certification, SGP requires a facility to set annual sustainability objectives and goals.

“Forge Graphic Works is dedicated to raising awareness about sustainable printing practices and encourages company-wide collaboration and adoption of these principles. These efforts are aimed squarely at the conservation of energy and preserving natural resources to make our place of business a healthy, safe and environmentally-aware workplace,” says Todd Ebersole, strategy director/co-owner of Forge Graphic Works.

Print facilities that are SGP certified indicate that they are in conformance with the SGP program criteria. An SGP-certified facility has met the basic requirements, along with specific requirements relating to the establishment of a sustainability team; the implementation of a management system; the use of SGP program metrics; taking specific steps to reduce the facility’s environmental footprint; implementing pollution prevention activities; and committing to fundamental social and ethical norms.

Nicki McFarlane, of Douglass Screen Printers, Inc., says, “Certification as Florida’s first green screen and digital printer has given Douglass and its team renewed pride in our company, bust also pride in knowing that this achievement will positively affect our community and our customers, in addition to our conscience.”
