Meyers strengthens its sustainability leadership with SGP certification
In June 2021, Meyers Printing Companies, Inc. achieved SGP certification for its Minneapolis, MN facility.

“Meyers believes in integrity and an important part of this is our environmental compliance and stewardship," said Chris Dillion, President at Meyers. "Integrity is a central part of who we are. And to us, integrity and sustainability are intertwined. If you’re not thinking about how your work impacts those around you and those who will come after you, are you really working with integrity?”
