Chesapeake’s Yupo Corporation America Joins North America’s Sustainable Printing Organization

Yupo Corporation America has joined the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership, (SGP), as a Silver Level Patron.

SGP is the leading authority in sustainable printing certifications for print manufacturers. Through its patronage, Yupo joins other print industry leaders dedicated to promoting sustainability, supporting the aims of SGP and keeping costs low for certification of print facilities.

“Supporting SGP not only aligns with Yupo’s corporate sustainability functions, but demonstrates the company’s leadership and advocacy for sustainable print operations,” according to Marci Kinter, Chair SGP Technical Committee. “Although SGP does not certify Yupo products, it does recognize the role the company plays within the print value chain.”

“Yupo believes that taking responsibility means more than just meeting minimum requirements. As a new member of the SGP Community, we hope to further the goal of less waste, not just for our planet’s future generations, but for today,” said Bill Hewitt, marketing manager, Yupo Corporation America. “Joining forces with SGP helps us achieve better sustainability gains in the industry and as part of our environmental commitment to Hampton Roads.”
