True to its commitment to sustainability, HID presents these cost-free, PVC-free documents that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®).
HID, the world leader in credit ID solutions, has launched HID Eco Seos® cards, documents made from sustainable sources (bamboo) instead of PVC. This credential is part of their award-winning security solution and the first in the Eco Cards series of physical access cards.
The bamboo from which the new cards are made is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®), guaranteeing that the material is responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
Recent market reports, including the State of Security and Identity HID Report, show that most organizations place climate and sustainability as corporate priorities. For this reason, they turn to renewable and environmentally friendly materials as much as possible, in addition to decreasing consumption and energy.
In this context, HID introduces a new approach to extremely safe materials made from bamboo, a renewable resource that grows rapidly and requires less water and pesticides than traditional materials. Demonstrating continuous innovation without compromising the safety and experience of its customers.
“Our journey to offering the option of plastic panels began 10 years ago with the introduction of HID Mobile Access®, an industry milestone,” explains Martin Huddart, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Physical Access Control at HID. “HID Eco represents Seos.” a sustainable option within the physical access ecosystem, as it supports a more environmentally friendly value chain in environments where physical access cards are still required”.
Supporting HID Eco Seos bamboo cards, organizations also seek sustainability certifications, such as the internationally recognized LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certifications, BREEAM (Sustainable Construction Certification) and Zero Waste to Landfill (Zero Waste) certification.
