The Loveland, OH-based Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) and Canopy have formed an alliance to promote sustainability and environmental stewardship, further enhancing the value of each program and establishing a foundation for future collaborative efforts.

"Canopy is pleased to have formed this alliance with SGP because we provide the framework for leading paper purchasing policies that support endangered forest conservation and the development of the most environmentally friendly paper.  We are happy to support printers throughout North America in implementing this vision," says Neva Murtha, 2nd Harvest/printer/magazine campaigner for Canopy.

According to Marcia Kinter, SGP Board of Directors Chair, "SGP's alliance with Canopy represents a significant step forward.  Canopy's program offers printing companies the tools necessary to meet and exceed certification criteria relating to responsible sourcing.  We are pleased to welcome Canopy and look forward to establishing a stronger working relationship."
