1,5 million cards issued by Banca Transilvania are eco-friendly
Comunicat de presa 2022-07-28
Banca Transilvania has issued 1.5 million eco-friendly cards, one year after it started its sustainable transformation in the cards market by launching Romania’s first eco-friendly card, BT Visa Classic. The bank has thus reduced the carbon footprint of cards issued and reissued by more than 10 tons in the last year.
The transition of BT’s cards portfolio to an eco-friendly alternative is being phased in.
What an eco-friendly BT card means:
- It’s made of recycled plastic with biodegradable elements;
- It has a digital version in the bank’s most used app, BT Pay;
- It has an extended validity of 5 years;
- The paper used for envelopes and customer information is made of sustainable materials (FSC - Forest Stewardship Council).
Banca Transilvania encourages contactless payments, e-commerce and the use of digital cards through payment apps and accessories.
