Eco Solutions

We have introduced a range of sustainable solutions across our card manufacture and bureau services. From materials utilised to produce the card and packaging, through to internal processes to reduce the impact on the environment.

6,000,000,000 payment cards are produced annually worldwide.

We have introduced a range of eco-friendly solutions to reduce the impact of card production on the environment and to provide our clients a solution that is right for them and their customers.

Recycled PVC

Recycled PVC is a sustainable eco solution that does not compromise on quality, printability, durability and certification requirements. Using recycled PVC in card manufacturing offers numerous environmental benefits. It significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption compared to virgin PVC production, thus promoting sustainability. The use of recycled PVC also leads to a substantial saving of CO2 emissions, with the business estimating that approximately two kilograms of CO2 will be saved for every kilogram of recycled PVC used. It also contributes to the preservation of natural resources by reducing the demand for virgin PVC, helping to minimise landfill volumes associated with PVC waste disposal. A key advantage is that recycled PVC can be recycled multiple times without significant loss of quality or performance, making it a valuable resource in a circular economy model.

Sustainable Stationery

We offer a wide range of sustainable stationery from the traditional card on A4 letter and envelope to bespoke packaging. All of the paper used on our A4 letters and envelopes are 100% biodegradable, 100% compostable and 100% recyclable. We also offer an incredible range of sustainable packaging, with 100% cardboard constructions. Sustainable packaging uses less water and energy to produce, consequently reducing the impact on the environment.

End-to-end Recycling

We already recycle 100% of our waste cards, plastic skeletons and any expired cards. We are now offering a further service to our clients, enabling them to send back their expired cards. The recycling of the plastic includes the chip and antennae meaning 100% of the card is recycled. The cards undergo a regrind process on-site and are then recycled for use in the construction industry.
