Thinking globally, Acting locally.
As a mid-sized business trading in a developing economy we take corporate responsibility seriously. Our primary commitment lies with a core of CSI projects, which we have supported for many years.

Protect our planet

As Printers we pay special attention to how we use and protect the planet’s resources. We employ Global Carbon Exchange to actively monitor and advise on our power consumption and carbon footprint. In addition, we are an Forestry Stewardship Council Certified Printer, simply meaning that our clients may have peace of mind knowing that their paper labels are sourced from responsibly managed forests. We are also big fans of the rhino and have contributed to the protection of this incredible species.

Ensure Tomorrow

We work across a spectrum of social development programmes: From early childhood and youth development programmes to supporting the International NGO Habitat for Humanity. We gladly support the Cape Town Multi-Service Centre which runs programmes and projects for street children, youth, and their families, and are especially proud of our work with Ubuntu House which is a safe haven for abandoned new-borns. We are also funders of the Ravensmead Secondary school’s feeding scheme, where we (and two committed volunteers) directly support 250 learners with two meals a day, everyday.

Developing skills. Developing people.

Since 2011…
• Total skills development spend R 198 253 709.00
• Training spend on black employees R 152 733 749.00
• 97% of Graduates are black employees of which 68% are black females
• 119 employees currently involved in learnership programmes

We are committed to developing the skills and knowledge of our employees and to this end we focus on programmes such as apprenticeships, learnerships, and bursaries for employees.

Our Graduate Programme provides opportunities for graduates to receive on-the-job work experience. Since 2011, thirty eight graduates have been appointed. 97% of these appointments have been for Black employees of which 68% have been Black females.

The graduates are appointed at various divisions in disciplines ranging from engineering, financial management to marketing. Each graduate is placed with a mentor who provides support, guidance and practical exposure to the workplace.

Our Bursary Programme has been running since 2011. Bursaries are awarded to employees who are earmarked for further development and focus on courses at NQF Level 6 or higher.

We have also been instrumental in the development of the Printing and Packaging Bridging Programme in conjunction with other partners. The aim of this programme is to address the scarcity of candidates applying for apprenticeships in the printing and packaging industry. This programme is recognised as an entry level qualification into any of the printing and packaging apprenticeships and related qualifications.

Our in-house training programme further enhances the quality of training received by our employees. Where industry related training material is unavailable, internal trainers develop content for our training programmes.
