Nets Printwork Sdn Bhd (Nets Printwork) has once again reaffirmed its position as a leader in environmental sustainability among Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) by clinching its 6th Prime Minister’s Hibiscus Award (PMHA) for Exceptional Achievement in Environmental Performance (Pencapaian Istimewa) in the SME category. This prestigious accolade underscores Nets Printwork’s unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship.
As a prominent member of the Nets Group of companies, Nets Printwork has consistently embraced greener and more sustainable practices in its operations, positioning itself as a preferred choice for businesses seeking eco-friendly printing solutions. This latest PMHA recognition solidifies Nets Printwork’s status as an exemplary model for other Malaysian SMEs to emulate in terms of sustainable environmental management practices.
Since 2012, Nets Printwork has been at the forefront of environmental responsibility, holding ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 9001:2008 certifications. The company actively participates in the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and proudly associates with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®). Nets Printwork has also been awarded the prestigious GreenTAG and MyHijau Mark certificates, further validating its dedication to environmentally conscious practices. Notably, the company has achieved a four-star rating for the SME Competitiveness Rating for Enhancement (SCORE) issued by SME Corp Malaysia.
“At Nets Printwork, sustainability lies at the heart of our operations. We take pride in being Malaysia’s first green printer with a recognized Eco label,” shared Teh Leong Sim, Managing Director of Nets Printwork. This forward-looking mindset has been instrumental in the company’s success, enabling notable environmental accomplishments and industry leadership, allowing it to consistently gain recognition at the Prime Minister’s Hibiscus Awards
With an impressive track record of six PMHA wins, Nets Printwork continues to set an example for businesses and industries across Malaysia. The Prime Minister’s Hibiscus Awards, established in 1996, serves as a distinguished platform for independent evaluation of environmental commitment, management, and performance. Nets Printwork’s exceptional achievements in environmental performance perfectly align with the award’s objectives, encouraging proactive engagement in sustainable environmental management practices and honoring exemplary models.
The PMHA assessment process comprises two stages: comprehensive data submission and thorough site visits conducted by a panel of experts. This rigorous evaluation ensures that participating organizations demonstrate a genuine commitment to environmentally sustainable operations.
A total of 22 companies achieved exceptional and excellent achievement awards in the Excellent Achievement category during the 2021/2022 cycle. The PMHA ceremony, jointly organized by the Environmental Management and Research Association of Malaysia (Ensearch), the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM), and the Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MICCI), recognizes outstanding environmental accomplishments in the private sector.
Nets Printwork’s recent achievements include receiving the first-ever ESG Positive Impact Awards earlier in June, in addition to the esteemed 6th Prime Minister’s Hibiscus Award. These accolades would not have been possible without the exceptional support and unwavering commitment of our dedicated team, clients, suppliers, and partners, who have played an instrumental role in driving our environmental sustainability initiatives. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every member of the NetsEco team for their unwavering dedication and hard work, which has led to this remarkable recognition. Mr. Teh Leong Sim, Managing Director of Nets Printwork, emphasized, “It is through their collective efforts that we have been acknowledged for our positive impact on the environment. We remain steadfast in upholding our values and continuing our pursuit of a sustainable future.”
