Message from Managing Director
Printcare is a relatively small company but is committed to sustainable value creation, for its shareholders and varied stakeholder groups. We recognize that as a leading printing and print services company globally we have a responsibility to establish a benchmark for sustainability. We believe that business acting as businesses not charitable donors are the most powerful force for addressing the pressing issues we face.
Sustainability for business is an optional imperative and strategic opportunity in the face of more stringent regulations imposed by Governments both in the country where goods and services are purchased and in the country where they are delivered.
Consumers themselves are demanding products that support the ecology and have longer life cycles and more value. It is clear that Companies that embrace this change will position themselves for continued growth in tomorrow's economy, reap the benefits, and find themselves in a position of leadership.
At Printcare, we do not wish it to be merely a program or a set of good intentions, but a set of behaviors and actions that are integrated with the business strategy of our Company and reflected in our culture. We believe sustainability is the growth opportunity of the 21st century, but we don't think it's just about being "green". It's about rethinking how the world works and finding smarter ways to do the simple actions that make up our daily lives. We recognize that societal needs not just conventional economic needs, define markets, and social harms can create internal costs for firms over the long term.
We are aligning our policies and operating practices in such a way that they enhance the competitiveness of the company while simultaneously advancing the economic and social conditions in the communities that we operate in.
At Printcare, we are working towards a more sophisticated form of capitalism, one imbued with a social purpose, a purpose that will arise not out of charity, but out of a deeper understanding of competition and economic value creation.

Opportunities and Challenges
Taking risks, facing challenges and identifying opportunities is an inherent part of entrepreneurial behavior. Sustainability risks and opportunities are identified using our Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Framework, and by considering issues raised by our key stakeholders and international benchmarks for sustainable performance. Our team then explores options, designs strategies and implements solutions. These solutions are then built into our strategic planning and operating plan processes to ensure continuous execution.
Managing challenges and opportunities forms an integral part of business management and are essential to the sustainability and growth of the business and safeguarding the Shareholder’s investment and Customer service.
Some of the key challenges and opportunities that have been identified are shown below and are published annually in order to give stakeholders an insight into the risks the company faces and the mitigating actions that are in place as contingency. The described risk factors below are not in order of significance or expected adverse impact.

Partnerships are fundamental to the way in which we run our business. They help to build trust among our key stakeholders and to reach a better understanding on a variety of important issues. Partnerships also pave the way for more successful solutions to problems, concerns and challenges. Printcare considers engagement to be an increasingly important component of its corporate citizenship strategy. Our engagement efforts help Printcare identify those issues that are most material to our business operations and shape our approach to addressing a range of areas relating to the financial, social, and environmental performance of the organization.
