The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) is a non-profit organization that certifies printing facilities’ sustainability best practices, including and beyond regulatory compliance. SGP advocates best practices and innovation among print community stakeholders, aligning the printing industry and its customers in the pursuit of a more accountable sustainable supply chain.
Monadnock has long sought to craft sustainable and premium printing, packaging, and specialty technical papers for brands worldwide. Operating under a third-party certified ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, the synergistic alignment and partnership with SGP will help to better serve the companies' mutual stakeholders and customers.
"Monadnock and the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership share a commitment to sustainability and innovation," says Jonathan Graham, chairman of the Board, Sustainable Green Printing Partnership. "Our work to build an increasingly sustainable supply chain is accelerating through strategic partnerships with leading companies like Monadnock."
Monadnock’s product portfolio, numbering more than 200 grades of paper, is FSC certified, manufactured carbon neutral (VERs) and made with 100% renewable Green-e certified wind powered electricity (RECs) under a third-party certified ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. In recent months, the company has introduced sustainable papers and packaging material made from alternative fibers such as industrial hemp, cotton linters, and jute derived from recycled coffee bags. Monadnock’s online Environmental Impact Calculator helps industry partners and customers forecast and assess the positive impacts on energy, air, water and waste by specifying its papers.
“We applaud the great work that our friends at SGP are doing and look forward to supporting their efforts to optimize sustainability across the supply chain,” states Julie Brannen, director, sustainability solutions, Monadnock. “At Monadnock, we’re committed to building a better world together with our customers and industry partners.”
