Three Facilities in 12 Months, Smyth’s on a Roll with – Sustainable Green Printer Partnership Certifications

05 February 2021: Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading authority in sustainable printing certifications, announced today that Smyth Companies in Austin, MN has achieved SGP certification. This is the third Smyth facility to earn SGP certification joining the others located in Bedford, VA and Boston, MA, USA.

Smyth Companies is among the printing industry’s sustainability leaders who have achieved SGP certification. SGP is the only sustainable printing certification in the United States and Canada requiring a comprehensive facility audit evaluating the three areas of sustainability – people, planet and profit.

“With our third facility SGP certified, we’re showing our industry and communities that Smyth is a sustainability leader,” said Scott Fisher, President of Smyth. “Our SGP certification is important to our customers as a vital part of their sustainable supply chain, and our communities are proud that we’re committed to safe and sustainable business practices.”

For more than a decade, Smyth has been making a commitment to itself and its customers to protect the health of the earth’s natural environment and conserve its energy resources. SGP’s multi-attribute comprehensive certification was a natural progression and significant next step for Smyth because it fully encompasses operation’s production and office practices along with proven methodology specifically developed for the printing industry. Smyth uses best practices outlined by SGP to enhance its processes for making socially responsible decisions that positively impact the environment, providing its customers with sustainable supply chain options, and safeguarding the health and safety of its employees.

“Smyth is a great example of how a company with multiple locations demonstrates its commitment to sustainability,” commented Marci Kinter, SGP co-founder, Executive Committee and PRINTING United Alliance representative. “This is the third location of Smyth that has met the holistic SGP criteria in a 12-month period.”
