Eurobank Launches Ecological, Biodegradable Cards

ATHENS – Eurobank announced on Tuesday the introduction for the first time in the Greek market of a new generation of cards made of ecological, biodegradable materials, adopting the international environmental protocols in banking, including the services and products provided.

According to the same announcement, from now on all new Eurobank debit cards for individuals and businesses, as well as all debit cards renewed or reissued, will be made of biodegradable material, which requires less energy consumption and significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions.

The aim is to implement, in practice, the bank's environmental strategy, with the view to significantly reducing its environmental footprint and strengthening sustainable development practices.

Abandoning the traditional plastic, the new cards can be recycled or composted, ie they are a fully "green" product, but retain exactly the same endurance standards, while their design is at the same time adapted to the latest international trends. In addition, environmentally-friendly standards are employed for their distribution (forms, envelopes and letterheads made from ecologically recyclable materials). This is the most modern trend in the world, which is in line with the group's decision to lead and innovate in a positive social and environmental way.
