Bangkok, March 23, 2022 – An efficient, biodegradable bank card? That's what dzcard is offering for its environmentally conscious customers.
dzcard, the leading secured smart card solution and digital security provider in South-East Asia, has just launched an innovative biodegradable PVC card, representing a more sustainable alternative to traditional PVC cards. The eco-friendly banking card allows dzcard's customers to reduce their ecological impact while ensuring an artistic, high-quality product for cardholders.
To deal with the humongous amount of plastic waste, dzcard has the ambition to spearheaded a green movement by introducing a first of its kind eco-friendly card in South-East Asia. This innovative eco-friendly card made from renewable sources offers exactly the same functions that the customers are used to including contactless payment capabilities. The card also meets all requirements for security and reliability, and is proven to be durable throughout its active use. The card has been extensively tested to withstand normal daily stresses.
The new dzcard’s biodegradable card completely biodegrades at the end of its usable life by breaking down when exposed to landfill conditions. Made of biodegradable PVC, the "green" credit cards will be absorbed back into the environment, given the right conditions. With exposure to soil, water, compost, and other micro-organisms, 99 per cent of the card will degrade entirely within nine to twelve months. The cards leave no toxic residue when it degrades.
Renaud Adam, Chief Executive Officer of dzcard, said that "there's been an evolution of the mind-set around sustainability in Asia," and "we do see there's a growing awareness of these issues with customers pushing for more eco-friendly credit and debit cards. dzcard is happy to be one of the first card manufacturers to offer a biodegradable card solution that helps reduce the overall plastic waste generation and contributes to the fight against climate change. It demonstrates our ongoing commitment to using materials and production processes that have a reduced environmental impact."
