Print buyers and customers are looking for sustainable green printers, and this registry makes it easy for them to find you. Visit www.SGPpartnership.org to learn more. Do not be left off of this list! Benefits of Becoming SGP Certified Global Packaging officially joined the ranks of green trail blazers when it became the first flexo printer and FTA member to achieve certified SGP Printer status. Come learn how Global made the decision to become SGP certified, the process that ensued, and most importantly what the benefits have been since becoming certified. The mission of the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership is to encourage and promote participation in the worldwide movement to reduce environmental impact and increase social responsibility of the print and graphic communications industry. Michelle Donohue, Global Packaging An Environmental Impact Assessment of Solvent, Thermal and Liquid Platemaking This presentation compares the mass and energy efficiency of multiple platemaking technologies to help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of each. The University of Tennessee’s Center for Clean products has developed an Environmental Footprint Calculator that uses LCA data to determine the environmental footprint of solvent, thermal and liquid plate processing. This calculator allows the user to input variables such as gauge, geographic location, and size/quantity of plates used. Because there is no single answer to all platemaking needs, we’ll highlight the key characteristics of each technology so that those making operational decisions can pick the best technique to meet their needs.
