Bobst enters the SGP community as a Gold Patron.

The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading authority in sustainable printing certifications, announced on 24 January 2022, that Bobst is now a gold patron. As a leader in the drive to achieve a circular economy in flexible packaging, Bobst’s partnership with SGP is another step in its goal to empower sustainability. Bobst joins other supporters of SGP certification and sustainable business practices. SGP certification is the only whole-facility certification program developed for the entire printing industry to offer credible sustainability validation by a third party.Bobst

“The Bobst approach to empower sustainability efforts internally and externally is two-fold. First, we look for opportunities to design, or re-design, our equipment so that it reduces process waste levels, energy use, or any potential environmental risks that its use might create,” said Emilio Corti, regional market director, Americas. “In parallel with this, Bobst takes a holistic approach to the whole process of manufacturing the equipment our customers buy from us.”

“Bobst demonstrates a commitment to sustainability with its solutions and sponsorship of SGP by supporting the print supply chain in the entire printing lifecycle from manufacture to operation, with circular economy considerations,” said Doreen Monteleone, SGP Treasurer and Flexographic Technical Association representative. “Working with SGP certified facilities gives print buyers a way to validate the sustainability initiatives of their vendors.”

Bobst joins with other patrons, certified facilities, brands, academic institutions and associations in the SGP Community working together to foster sustainability in the print supply chain. “We take pride in the initiatives we undertake to empower sustainability and partnering with SGP was a natural fit for us” said Corti.

SGP certification recognizes top sustainability leaders in the printing industry that meet its holistic and rigorous certification criteria. Facilities, including printers and suppliers, are interested in eliminating waste, reducing energy consumption, transitioning to sustainable materials and winning new business from organizations that require sustainable printing practices.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
