Workz is helping mobile network operators (MNOs) reduce their environmental footprint by introducing a biodegradable SIM card, which can also be safely recycled with other oil-based plastic.
Claimed to biodegrade completely in landfill or through composting, the EcoSIM is one of several sustainability initiatives introduced by Workz, which is already ISO 14001 certified for Environmental Management.
Others include modifying designs to halve plastic consumption per customer; introducing virtual alternatives, such as eSIM; using recycled materials in packaging; and optimising supply chains to cut the use of energy and unsustainable materials. In 2019, 5.5 billion SIM cards were produced worldwide. www.workz.com
