First place in the “Sustainability” category went to the exceet Card Group , which was recognized for its innovative payment cards made from sustainable raw materials. The P19 payment platform awards projects that stand out for their particularly innovative business model or their disruptive application possibilities. “Sustainability is also an important issue in the payment area that requires a certain amount of attention. We are pleased that this award is now putting sustainability in the limelight and receiving the attention it has long needed,” comments Christian Leeb, CSO of the exceet Card Group.

exceet: alternative cards for sustainable payments

The advantage of cards from the exceet Card Group is that they can be produced from sustainable raw materials, in contrast to other conventional plastic bank and customer cards. They are made from either wood, recycled PET/PVC or metal. “Many companies and payment service providers are increasingly focusing on sustainability. The card is the link between a company and its customers and is therefore perfectly suited to making this value transformation tangible and tangible,” comments Leeb. The products of the exceet Card Group were able to convince with the sustainability of their procurement, but also with their value chain: They only contain regional and recycled raw materials, and the production takes place within a radius of less than 400 kilometers in Europe. For example, the card antennas are made of copper in-house instead of having them imported from China. In-house photovoltaic systems, the use of local green electricity and CO2-free mailing keep the CO2 footprint as small as possible.

They were all convinced of the innovative strength and the sustainability factor of the exceet products and of the entire company. Other assessment criteria were inclusion and collaboration. On behalf of the Exceet Card Group, Chief Sales Officer Christian Leeb accepted the award at the P19 New Year’s event.
