PPAI’s partnership with SAGE (PPAI 100001) allows Association members access to the details regarding the products of thousands of industry suppliers. Now, SAGE’s 45,000 users have new functions for which they can filter the product search engine: ESG and diversity certifications.

  • Numerous companies last year explained to PPAI the importance of diversity certifications for promo businesses for which they could apply.
  • Additionally, B-Corp certifications are an increasingly important part of not only doing good by the world but proving that the promo industry is moving forward.
  • Doing business with diverse suppliers and partners who make CSR initiatives a forward-facing part of their companies is something that clients are expecting of distributors.

SAGE Total Access users will now be able to filter companies based on whether they have these certifications.

  • Included in the filter options will be B-Corp or CSR-certified, as well as search for companies that are disability-owned, Hispanic-owned and LGBTQ+-owned.
  • Users were already able to search for businesses that were owned by women, veterans and minorities.

Attendees of The PPAI Expo 2023 can learn more about these expanded search options when they stop by to visit SAGE (Booth 3435) on the event’s trade floor.
