What is SP2?
SP2 is a voluntary program that develops a pathway to increased efficiency, resulting in lower overall operating costs. Participants will earn an SP2 facility certification. Similar to other certification programs (such as Enhancing Furniture’s Environmental Culture and ISO 14001), SP2 establishes a management system for in-depth business analysis that will identify steps to reduce environmental impacts, establish best practices and define metrics to track progress. SP2 can also serve as a foundation for pursuing an ISO 14001 certification, the international standard for effective environmental management systems.
