SGP Certifies Hub Labels

The facility is the second in Maryland to achieve the certification.



The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP; Sayville, NY) has announced that Hub Labels Inc. (Hagerstown, MD) has been certified as an SGP Printer. Hub Labels was certified through TLMI’s Label Initiative for the Environment (L.I.F.E.) program in 2007. TLMI endorsed SGP in 2018 and has since become an SGP Resource Partner.

As per the company, in 2009 Hub introduced linerless labels, a label band designed for skin pack trays, to the US marketplace. A label without a liner equates to less label waste and reduced shipping costs. Thomas Dahbura, the owner of Hub Labels, embraced the challenge to “go green” in more areas of the business.
“When we started looking into the requirements for SGP certification, we knew a lot of our content from L.I.F.E would be transferable, but outdated,” said Jesse Hood, Hub’s senior quality and improvement manager. “We created an SGP Team and decided that we would completely revamp our environmental sustainability program to align with the SGP criteria. We conducted a gap analysis to identify where we needed to make updates to our sustainability efforts and then tackled those projects one-by-one. It took just over a year to complete the requirements to successfully pass the SGP audit.”
