Enabling the payment community’s environmental paradigm shift
From life cycle analysis, and eco-conception to waste minimization, recycling, reducing and offsetting carbon, IDEMIA is working on a wide range of initiatives to address our environmental responsibilities.
With employees in 62 different countries, across more than 200 sites and operations across more than 140 countries, IDEMIA is tackling the environmental challenges relevant to our business, with a focus on:
Through the Environmental Policy, IDEMIA communicates common environmental objectives, outlines individual, local and global roles, and sets out guidelines to achieve compliance with environmental legislation affecting our business.
IDEMIA’s environmental initiatives include improving waste management—in particular waste to landfills—reducing energy consumption, and replacing chemical products with alternative, solvent-free ones for greener processes.
IDEMIA participates in the Carbon Disclosure Project, annually sharing carbon footprint data.
IDEMIA is working with our clients to improve the environmental footprint and impact of our products. Taking care to ensure that our products meet the requirements of environmental legislation, IDEMIA checks elements entering into products to ensure compliance with applicable laws and IDEMIA policy prior to releasing a new product in the market. Suppliers of raw materials are expected to guarantee that they are providing goods in accordance with environmental laws. Environmental due diligence is performed, and may be triggered by changes in supplier, materials composition or release of new legislation.
Following a program of eco-design, IDEMIA’s R&D engineers analyze the environmental aspects of raw materials, manufacturing and assembly process, distribution, and end of life management, with attention on all phases of the product life. The IDEMIA R&D team considers environmental aspects in both the technical specifications of the product and required manufacturing equipment, as well as the set-up of new associated production processes.
A range of environmentally conscious options are on offer, from reduced size cards to alternative card body materials, streamlined transportation, and environmentally-friendly packaging solutions. IDEMIA can support customers in offsetting carbon emissions linked to the production and transportation of the cards.
