Kodak has become a platinum patron of the North America-focused Sustainable Green Printing (SGP) initiative.

The platinum certificate is the highest level and recognises the company’s role in encouraging sustainable practices within the print industry. SGP claims to be the only certification organisation promoting sustainability in all printing processes throughout the United States and Canada.

Jim Continenza, executive chairman and CEO of Kodak, said, ‘Our partnership with SGP is an example of Kodak’s commitment to the environment and the implementation of a more sustainable print supply chain. When it comes to sustainability within the print industry, our goals are aligned with those of SGP.

‘Kodak continues to invest in innovative products and solutions that fuel sustainable growth for our company and our customers. As an SGP patron, we will play an active role in driving the industry’s transformation towards more eco-friendly and resource-saving business practices and improving the sustainability profile of print.’

SGP co-founder Marci Kinter added, ‘Kodak demonstrates its strong commitment to a circular economy through its broad sustainability program, especially as it relates to the print production process and support on their customers in sustainability.

‘Kodak is already making an impact by helping its customers understand the importance of third-party sustainability validation like that of the SGP sustainability certification.’
