CPI Card Group, Visa launch sustainable payment card

Wednesday 17 June 2020 13:59 CET | News

Card provider CPI Card Group and Visa have launched the Earthwise High Content Card, a sustainable payment card made with up to 98 percent upcycled plastic. 

CPI created the Earthwise High Content Card, endorsed by Visa, to help reduce first-use plastic in payment cards and reduce plastic waste entering landfills. Through an exclusive agreement, the companies will initially provide all Visa-issuing financial institutions worldwide access to the Earthwise High Content Card, which is EMV compliant and dual interface capable, enabling both contact and contactless payment. 

The Earthwise High Content Card will initially be Visa-branded. A recent CPI Consumer Insights survey of debit and credit card users conducted by an independent research firm, found 73% of respondents indicated it is important that their financial institution is environmentally-conscious, and over 57% would be interested in a card made with recycled materials, as stated by the official press release.
