Syracuse Label & Surround Printing validates sustainability leadership via SGP Partnership certification

The SGP Partnership, the leading authority in sustainable certification for the printing industry, announced today Syracuse Label & Surround Printing of North Syracuse, NY has achieved its sustainability certification. A recognized leader in sustainability, the company offers digital and flexographic printing solutions with a product portfolio that includes pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves, flexible packaging, cartons, hang tags, roll fed-wrap labels and other custom-made printed products.

"We are so excited to receive SGP certification and are proud of our environmental commitment," said Kathy Alaimo, Syracuse Label & Surround Printing president. "This certification differentiates us from our competitors and makes a significant difference when competing for talent."

As a certified SGP facility, Syracuse Label & Surround Printing is committed to sustainability targets by reducing waste, conserving energy, sourcing sustainable materials, creating a safe workplace and lowering carbon footprint. Each year, SGP certified facilities, like Syracuse Label & Surround Printing, must propose a continuous improvement project as part of its certification. In addition, every two years, facilities must undergo an independent third-party audit.

"SGP is proud to have Syracuse Label & Surround Printing as a certified facility. The company is a strong leader in sustainable practices, from its zero-waste-to-landfill to lean manufacturing," said Jonathan Graham, SGP chair. "The company is a model of how a manufacturing facility benefits its customers with sustainability built in every process and aspect of the company. Retailers working with Syracuse Label & Surround Printing can be confident of a strong sustainable supply chain partner."

As part of its sustainability program, Syracuse Label & Surround Printing recycles all plate material, computer equipment, metal replacement parts, UV & florescent lights, wood pallets and batteries. The remaining raw material, kitchen and office waste is used as solid fuel for alternative power generation. By using digital technologies, the company reduces the waste of all printing materials including plates, substrate, inks and other printing supplies. The result of lean manufacturing includes a decrease in electricity and natural gas for heating, cooling and plant operation.
