Fortis Solutions Group Achieves Sustainable Green Printer Partnership Certification for Merced facility

The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading authority in sustainable printing certifications, announced today that the Fortis Solution Group achieved its first SGP certification for its Merced, CA facility.

“I am incredibly proud of our Merced team for achieving this notable recognition,” said John O. Wynne, Jr., Fortis Fortis President and CEO. “The SGP certification validates our commitment, both internally and externally, to providing innovative and differentiating sustainable solutions.”

SGP certification takes into account the entire print facility, its process, product, and social areas. SGP certification elevates a printer into an elite group of top sustainable printers, recognized by print buyers and the printing industry. SGP certification is supported by industry associations, including the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) and TLMI.

“Sustainability has been a core value of our company for many years,” said David Bankson, Fortis President of Flexible Packaging. “SGP has done a terrific job developing a challenging yet attainable standard driven by data and real-world solutions to the challenges we face as a packaging printer. We are excited to join the SGP as a certified printer and, I’m proud of the commitment to sustainability our team practices that allowed us to achieve this.”

As a certified SGP printer, Fortis is committed to exceeding sustainability targets by reducing waste, conserving energy, sourcing sustainable materials, creating a safe workplace, continuous improvement, and lowering our carbon footprint. Each year sustainability projects are identified and tracked to document areas of improvement; an audit by the third-party certification organization occurs every two years.
