International. The bamboo credential design became the latest innovation introduced by HID, replacing PVC as a material, and launched under the HID Eco Seos brand, which is part of the award-winning Seos® security solution and is the first in the Eco Card™ series of physical access cards.
The brand explained that the bamboo from which the new cards are made is certified by the Forest Stewardship® Council (FSC®), ensuring that the material comes from responsibly worked forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
Recent market reports, including HID's State of Security and Identity Report, indicate that most organizations rank climate and sustainability as corporate priorities. As a result, they are turning to renewable and environmentally friendly materials as much as possible, as well as decreasing energy and waste consumption.
In this context, HID introduces the new highly secure access credentials made from bamboo, a rapidly growing renewable resource that requires less water and pesticides than traditional card materials.
"Our journey to offer options other than plastic cards began 10 years ago with the introduction of HID Mobile Access, an industry milestone," said Martin Huddart, senior vice president and general manager of Physical Access® Control at HID. "HID Eco Seos represents a sustainable option within physical access ecosystems, supporting a more environmentally friendly value chain in environments where physical access cards are still required."
Bamboo HID Eco Seos cards also support organizations seeking sustainability certifications, such as internationally recognized LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certifications, BREEAM (Sustainable Building Certificate) and Zero Waste to Landfill certification.
