BioSourced Gogreen Payment Card For Deutsche Post DHL

Gemalto : 10 June, 2010  (Application Story)
Gemalto is to produce 100,000 Gogreen cards for Deutsche Post DHL made from bio-sourced materials in support of the German company's environmental impact reduction efforts
BioSourced Gogreen Payment Card For Deutsche Post DHL
Gemalto has announced that Deutsche Post DHL is rolling out its innovative bio-sourced payment cards. Starting June 1, 2010, Deutsche Post DHL is offering its enterprise customers Postcard Gogreen, which can be used to pay for the mailing of letters and packages and for express deliveries. Postcard Gogreen has the same physical format and characteristics as common payment cards. Each card is associated with the customer through a unique numeric code, with 100,000 Postcards Gogreen being deployed in this initial roll-out.

Gemalto's bio-sourced payment card is made from a renewable material derived from corn, sugarcane and potato starch. This material is easily recyclable and compostable through small scale industrial units and reduces the global ecological footprint of the production process.

"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," commented Peter Grau, Head of Product Management Business Communication at Deutsche Post DHL. "The Gemalto innovation came about just as we were considering offering our customers an eco-friendly Postcard."

Gogreen is the climate protection program of Deutsche Post DHL. Gogreen's goal is to reduce the CO2 emissions Deutsche Post DHL generates for every letter and parcel sent, and across all of its operations including subcontracted transportation services. The Postcard Gogreen complements the expanded portfolio of climate-friendly products and services that Deutsche Post DHL launched in 2008.

"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. "This new contract is a further milestone in the long-standing business relationship Gemalto has established with Deutsche Post DHL. Our company has been Deutsche Post DHL's sole supplier of cards and personalization services for the last ten years, and we highly value this new mark of trust."
