At Pharos, we believe that the best solutions come from a mindset of discovery. This belief is refined by our experience and shaped by our values. One of these values is stewardship.

Stewardship is an ethic that embodies the responsible planning and management of resources. It is a mindset of being accountable for the resources entrusted to our care. When we purchase a bottle of wine, for example, we are purchasing the wine to consume, but we are also implicitly trusted with the future of its bottle, cork and foil.

Stewardship is intentional and purposeful ownership. When we say we work to “make print the way it should be,” we mean that our efforts and insights will result in more than cost savings, waste reduction, and improved security. Our efforts and insights, driven by our values, will also result in more mindful printing behaviors; users that are more conscious of their choices and more aware of the resources they consume with each decision to print.

Whether it’s the 13 ounces of clean water required to produce a single sheet of paper, or the energy required to create and transport paper and toner, we must remember that every decision to print has a cost with more depth than simply the dollar value of the printing transaction.

With this level of stewardship behind every decision to print, page volumes inevitably decline. As our stewardship value permeates our customers through our products and services, there is a global payback. Cha-ching!
