HID introduces access cards manufactured from sustainably sourced bamboo

HID, THE trusted identity solutions specialist, has introduced its Seos Bamboo credentials made from sustainably sourced bamboo instead of PVC. The credential is part of HID’s award-winning Seos security solution and is the first in a range of physical access security Eco Cards.

The bamboo is certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council, which delivers an assurance that the material comes from responsibly managed forests and focuses on environmental, social and economic benefits.

Recent market reports, including HID’s own State of Security and Identity Report, indicate that a majority of organisations rank climate and sustainability as corporate priorities. As a result, they are turning to renewable and eco-friendly materials as much as possible, in addition to reducing energy consumption and waste.

Introducing highly secure access cards made from bamboo – a renewable resource that grows quickly and requires less water and pesticides than traditional card materials – amply demonstrates HID’s continuous innovation without compromising security and customer experience.

“Our journey to offer alternative options to plastic cards and badges began ten years ago with the introduction of HID Mobile Access, which was a genuine ‘first’ in the industry,” explained Martin Huddart, senior vice-president and managing director of physical access control at HID. “Seos Bamboo offers an additional option for sustainability within the physical access ecosystem as it supports a more eco-friendly value chain in areas where physical access cards are still required.”

Seos Bamboo cards also support those organisations seeking green building certifications, including the internationally accepted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method and the Zero Waste to Landfill certification.
