Printing industry sets sustainability goals for labeling

Printing industry sets sustainability goals for labeling | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership, (SGP) has set its goals for the print manufacturing on how to acheive higher levels of responsibility and sustainability. The fifth anual SGP Community Day, held in Cincinnati, included in-depth discussions on a wide range of issues that the print and retail industries are facing, specifically with respect to the circular economy, green procurement and recycling. For the cosmetics and personal industry, printing plays a large part in the production of packaging, both for labeling and for the design of secondary packaging.

EcoVadis's insight:

The concept of a ‘Circular Economy’ has been growing in prominence over the past few decades, particularly as corporate social responsibility has become increasingly integrated into mainstream business strategy. This trend is likely to continue as the current linear economic system is challenged by growing resource scarcity.
