Earth Friendly

In addition to our cultural commitment to environmentally responsible manufacturing, we continually invest in new, innovative and greener product alternatives. Currently, most products we offer can be manufactured using earth friendly substrates made from Recycled PVC. We carefully segregate PVC waste generated in our own manufacturing facility during the normal course of production. This material is combined with new resin to produce printable PVC core material that contains a minimum of 65%* recycled content. This process ensures that the final product is consistently printable and durable. Some print color variation will occur from run to run, due to the inherent variability of the recycled component.

Allegheny customers now have the ability to label your recycled card product with the International Card Manufacturers Association (ICMA) EcoLabel logo. The ICMA created the EcoLabel Standard Program to help evaluate the environmental performance of a manufacturer’s cards through a third-party ecolabeling certification program. ICMA’s Green Task Force developed the Standard through an open process involving card manufacturers, personalizers, suppliers and issuers from around the world. The Standard initiates measurable criteria for assessing the environmental impact of cards for ICMA EcoLabel certification and conforms to global ISO principles for environmental labeling. In general, the current ICMA EcoLabel criteria include reduced materials (minimum of 25%), recycled content (minimum 25% threshold) and compostability (municipal and home).
