HID launches bamboo-made Seos access security cards

Thursday 18 May 2023 12:05 CET | News

US-based identity solutions provider HID has launched the Seos access security cards made from sustainably sourced bamboo.


These cards are part of HID’s Seos security solution and are the first in a range of physical access security Eco Cards. The bamboo used for the creation of these cards is certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council, which means that it comes from responsibly managed forests that offer environmental, social, and economic benefits. 

HID’s efforts to distance itself from PVC use comes in the context of recent market reports, including HID's State of Security and Identity Report, that indicate a growing tendency for organisations to prioritise climate and sustainability efforts. By moving to renewable and eco-friendly materials, HID is also looking to minimise its energy consumption and waste. 

Bamboo represents a renewable resource that grows quickly and requires less water and pesticides when compared to card materials. The material can aid HID in its efforts towards improving the sustainability of its products without compromising security and customer experience. 

Seos Bamboo cards also support organisations seeking green building certifications, including the internationally accepted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method, and the Zero Waste to Landfill certification. 

HID officials cited by revealed that the company began exploring alternatives to plastic cards 10 years ago with the introduction of HID Mobile Access. They also talked about Seos Bamboo and emphasised that this product line supports an eco-friendlier value chain in areas where physical access cards are still required.
