SGIA member PolyOne Corporation has become a Silver Patron of the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), a nonprofit organization providing sustainability certification in the printing industry. PolyOne Corporation is a provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions. By supporting SGP, PolyOne upholds its commitment to sustainability, and is devoted to the best practices for reducing environmental impact.
“SGP is viewed as setting the frontier with sustainability initiatives and we wanted our Wilflex brand inks to be a part of a forum that helped to spread the word,” stated Kevin Shikoluk, director of marketing and technology at PolyOne.
PolyOne is committed to ethical and sustainable principles and has established the “PolyOne Sustainable Solutions” certification to denote products or services that meet defined standards for sustainability in areas such as renewability, recycle-ability, reusability, eco-conscious composition or resource efficiency.
“Customers want to be assured that they are using products and inks that are safe for the environment. Wilflex inks are made with quality, safety and the environment in mind, and are formulated to meet compliance standards supported by an effective system of management controls,” said Shikoluk.
“We are excited that PolyOne has chosen to be an SGP Patron within our community. Their water-based non-PVC inks and their own ‘PolyOne Sustainable Solutions’ product and solutions certification exemplify their commitment and sustainability leadership throughout the printing industry,” commented Martine Padilla, executive director of SGP.
