This collaboration between IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity and Treezor the French banking-as-a-service market leader, has today culminated in the launch of the first ever eco-friendly card by a fintech in France. This move ties in with both companies’ green initiatives while meeting consumer demand for sustainable solutions.
Backed by longstanding design, development and production know-how, IDEMIA was able to offer Treezor a low-natural-resource-consuming card without compromising at all on security or end-user convenience. As part of its environmental strategy, IDEMIA reaffirms its commitment to move away from today’s linear take-make-waste model and fundamentally rethink the way we design, use and reuse plastics.
Onlyone, first eco-friendly neobank1
Onlyone2, a startup that markets itself as the first ever genuinely environmentally friendly fintech, will be the first recipient of this new 85+% recycled PVC card that is due to be launched with its existing customers in September 2020.
“We strive to adopt green practices throughout our operations by going paperless and developing digital and eco-friendly bank card solutions. Bank cards are manufactured from industrial waste-based recycled PVC in line with circular economy principles, which seek to cut waste of natural resources and minimize industrial waste. IDEMIA also obtained “Environmental Claim Validation Summary” certification from its recycled PVC supplier “UL Environment Inc.”said Amanda Gourbault, Executive Vice-President for Financial institutions activities at IDEMIA.
"We are grateful Treezor and IDEMIA give us this amazing opportunity to be the first Fintech in France to offer an eco-responsible card. With this new card, we are laying the first brick in supporting our customers towards a low-carbon lifestyle" said Kamel Nait Outaleb, Co-founder and CEO of Onlyone.
“We are proud that Onlyone will issue this very first card that embraces our and Onlyone’s values and meets today’s consumer expectations. We are thrilled to have a chance to contribute to #Tech4Good who share what we are trying to achieve. A big thank you to IDEMIA for bringing its technological expertise” said Eric Lassus, Treezor cofounder and CEO.

Octapharma Reports Positive Data from octagam ® Usage in Critically Ill COVID-19 Patients15.7.2020 17:04:00 CEST | Press release
Topline results from a retrospective study in 93 critically ill COVID-19 patients have become available. The data shows that IVIG treatment reduces inflammation, which is associated with poor clinical outcomes and death, and points to an increase in survival, in critically ill COVID-19 patients, when compared to a control group. The study was conducted at the Istanbul University Hospital, Turkey, under the lead of Prof. Dr. Figen Esen. In critically ill COVID-19 patients, the cause of death often implicates an abnormal pulmonary immune response. This abnormal immune response is characterized by high levels of inflammatory markers, which are associated with poor clinical outcomes.1, 2 Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and multiorgan failure are major causes of mortality in COVID-19 patients.3 High levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines are part of a severe inflammatory response known as a “cytokine storm” which may cause multiple organ dysfunction and ARDS in criti
