Shawmut Communications Group Achieves SGP Certification
10/10/2019
The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading authority in sustainable printing certifications for print manufacturers, announced today that Shawmut Communications Group of Danvers, MA has achieved SGP certification.

“When my grandfather started Shawmut in 1951 the term “sustainability” was not known, but the concept has always been part of our DNA,” says Kristin Spanier, Shawmut’s Sustainability Program Manager. “Pursuing SGP-certification was a natural step in our company’s evolution. It’s a fantastic way to officially recognize the work we’ve done to minimize our impact and document our ongoing commitment to reduce, reuse and conserve.”

Shawmut is committed to using SGP certification to work collaboratively with suppliers, print buyers and other supporting organizations to create a more sustainable printing supply chain. By adopting the SGP framework, Shawmut has strengthened its workforce and given back to their local community.

Upon becoming a newly certified facility, Shawmut has identified and targeted their first continuous improvement project. The facility is on a mission to recycle plastics labeled 1-7, allowing Shawmut to reduce their trash volume by 5 percent.

“To be the first SGP Certified printer in the state of Massachusetts is a major milestone,” adds Spanier. “As amazing as this is, we understand that sustainability is a continuous journey, not a goal to be checked off and onto the next. It’s a way of life. That’s why SGP represents more than just a logo to place on our website. To us, it’s a purposeful partnership that will drive positive change.”

Print facilities interested in eliminating waste, reducing energy consumption, transitioning to sustainable materials, and winning new business from organizations that require sustainable printing practices from their suppliers should visit sgppartnership.org/certification to learn more about becoming SGP certified in 2019.
