Environmental concerns underpin IDEMIA’s business practices. Through GREENPAY, IDEMIA commits to move away from today’s “take-make-waste” attitude to redesign our habits. IDEMIA is proud to develop solutions generating less plastic and paper waste, reducing land and water pollution while also minimizing its carbon footprint.

GREENPAY is IDEMIA’s commitment to continuously improve each part of the payment card value chain, seeking to:

  • Minimize the environmental impact of its processes and services
  • Develop innovative, eco-friendly products, services and solutions
  • Help customers achieve their environmental goals with IDEMIA’s product offering.

GREENPAY encompasses eco-friendly card body solutions, advanced card related services like eco-designed packaging, on-demand printing of PEFC/FSC certified card carrier, digital alert and e-documents among other services that enable financial institutions to deploy their sustainability transformation.

Over the last few months, IDEMIA’s customers around the world, including Latin America, the US, Europe and Asia, have adopted GREENPAY. For example:

  • The RHB1 Visa WWF Debit Card-i is a recycled PVC payment card which will be available to all new and existing RHB customers in Malaysia from July 2020. The cards contain state-of-the-art technology for seamless payments, have passed all durability tests and are ISO-certified and EMV compliant.
  • IDEMIA’s trusted solutions were chosen to accompany BBVA’s2 customers in the environmental transition journey. This partnership will progressively allow the bank to deliver cards made of “eco friendly” materials to customers in all countries where it has a presence by the end of 2021.
  • IDEMIA also offers Treezor3, a low-natural-resource-consuming card which does not compromise on security or end-user convenience. The collaboration between IDEMIA and Treezor - French banking-as-a-service market leader - has culminated in the launch of the first ever eco-friendly card by a FinTech in France.
  • IDEMIA was also awarded the “Environmental Claim Validation Summary” certification by its recycled PVC supplier “UL Environment Inc.”

Furthermore all GREENPAY products & services – through IDEMIA’s certified partner – financially contribute to key environmental projects around the world in line with the Sustainable Development Goals set up by the United Nations.

IDEMIA’s Executive VP Financial Institutions Amanda Gourbault said:We at IDEMIA take sustainable development very seriously and believe the financial community is perfectly placed to promote green initiatives and build a better tomorrow. This is GREENPAY’s primary objective, combining all our expertise in technologies which further CSR goals.”

Global Coalition Unites to Tackle the Urban Water Crisis and Address Climate Change Through Public-Private Collaboration27.10.2020 12:00:00 CETPress release

Launched today, the 50L Home Coalition (Coalition) is a global action-oriented platform addressing two of the world’s most pressing challenges: water security and climate change. This global collaboration aims to re-invent the future of water and change the narrative on domestic water consumption by making a water-efficient lifestyle – 50 Liters (L) of daily water use per person – an irresistible aspiration for all. The world is in the midst of an urban water crisis, and the pressures on our limited resources are only accelerating. Seventy percent of the world’s 20 megacities are already experiencing water scarcity or drought conditions, disrupting business, threatening health and exacerbating inequalities. The average home in the developed world is highly inefficient, and average per capita household water use is as high as 500L per day.
