HID Global Joins ASSA ABLOY in Reporting Environmental Performance for Access Control Readers

Environmental Product Declarations have been released for most iCLASS SE door readers and pivCLASS readers.

AUSTIN, Texas —  HID Global, a secure identity solutions company, announced on Tuesday it has joined parent company ASSA ABLOY in reporting the environmental performance of its access control readers using Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). The company has released EPDs for most of its iCLASS SE door readers and many of its pivCLASS readers, providing a transparent view of the products’ sustainable qualities and environmental repercussions so that customers can make more informed purchase decisions.

HID Global will showcase its solutions featuring EPDs, along with other sustainability initiatives in ASSA ABLOY Booth #1513 at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo on Nov. 18 through Nov. 20 in Washington D.C.

“As the first access control company to initiate EPD reporting for its products, we are providing customers with a new set of tools to educate their own environmentally-conscious customers while also adding new value to our Genuine HID solutions,” said Kevin Teehan, vice president of strategic services and chief compliance officer with HID Global. “We chose our award-winning, flagship iCLASS SE and pivCLASS door readers to launch this new initiative, and we plan to extend the practice to a broader range of products in the near future.”

In addition to assisting with product purchase decisions, HID Global’s EPDs can also be used for public procurement and building assessment activities, and to provide environmental performance validation for such programs as U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Platinum accreditation. The company has instituted EPD reporting as part of a broader corporate and cultural commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. HID Global’s extensive list of sustainability initiatives are focused on minimizing its carbon footprint, reducing operating costs and creating green products and solutions for its customers.

An EPD is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the lifecycle environmental impact of products.
