HID has introduced its Seos Bamboo credentials, made from sustainably sourced bamboo instead of PVC. The credential is part of HID’s 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 (FSC), an assurance that the material comes from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
As a result, they are turning to renewable and eco-friendly materials as much as possible, in addition to reducing energy consumption and waste.
“Our journey to offer alternative options to plastic cards and badges began 10 years ago with the introduction of HID Mobile Access—a first in the industry,” explains Martin Huddart, Senior VP 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 organisations seeking green building certifications, including the internationally accepted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), and the Zero Waste to Landfill certification.
