New SGP Brand Leader Aims to Double SGP Membership
The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP; Sayville, NY) has announced that InnerWorkings Inc. (INWK, Chicago) has joined the SGP community as the newest SGP Brand Leader. By becoming an SGP Brand Leader, INWK is able to further advance their clients and help them determine their sustainability goals. Brand Leaders align their print procurement practices with their organization's sustainability initiatives and goals. INWK's target is to double SGP's membership within the next three years.
According to a statement released by SGP, INWK chose to partner with SGP as a new way to advance its mission of delivering measurable, sustainable value to its clients and within the supply chain. While the world is rapidly changing right now, INWK knows that in the long-term, sustainable solutions will continue to be on the minds of the brands it serves.
As one of its main sustainability initiatives, INWK is advocating for its suppliers to become certified SGP Printers and prioritize spend with those that are certified. It recently launched a sustainability survey across 2000 INWK print suppliers to get a better understanding of the type of sustainability practices, measurement tools, and goals they currently have in place, and are actively working with many clients on achieving their specific sustainability goals. In addition, INWK has started a comprehensive database of sustainable alternatives for commonly used substrates across North America and Europe.
