Deutsche Post DHL, an international mail
service, has unveiled plans to roll out cards made from
recycled materials developed by digital security solutions
provider Gemalto.

Deutsche Post DHL has deployed
100,000 Postcard Gogreen cards in the initial roll-out
which began at the beginning of the month. Its enterprise customers
can now use the environmentally sound cards as a means of payment
for the mailing of letters and packages and for express

“Deutsche Post DHL constantly wants to provide
its customers with the most complete offering possible and Gemalto
enabled us to bring in an additional product, Postcard Gogreen,”
said Peter Grau, head of product management business communication
at Deutsche Post DHL.

Postcard Gogreen has the same physical format
and characteristics as common payment cards and each card is
associated with the customer through a unique numeric code.

Gemalto’s bio-sourced payment card is made
from a renewable material derived from corn, sugarcane and potato
starch. This material is recyclable and compostable through small
scale industrial units.

“Deutsche Post DHL is strongly committed to
sustainable development and Gemalto is proud to support this
strategy which is perfectly in line with our dedication to reduce
the environmental impact,” added Philippe Cambriel, executive vice
president, Gemalto.
