    The ecological footprint of banknotes depends on many factors. Stringent product requirements to ensure security, durability, functionality and design limit the scope for sustainability concerns. Louisenthal, a subsidiary of the Giesecke+Devrient Currency Technology Group, has analyzed the production of banknotes with regard to sustainability and launched an information campaign to raise awareness. This campaign also aims to assist central banks and banknote printing plants in their efforts to improve the sustainability of banknotes.

    Eco-friendly and “fair trade” produced raw materials, resource-conserving production processes, reusable packing and intelligent recycling are key considerations to obtain a sustainable product. What about the ecological footprint of a banknote over its lifecycle? Louisenthal paper mill has now examined this question. For the recently launched sustainability campaign headed “Life of a Banknote”, the international specialist of banknote paper and security foils has looked at the individual steps in the value chain and analyzed them from the viewpointof sustainability.

    From paper cheques and debit cards to contactless payment: The eurocheque system, which officially celebrates its 50th birthday on 1 May 2019, has made a rapid career. What nobody suspected at the time: The foundation stone for today's modern payment methods was laid. Giesecke+Devrient (G+D) takes a look back at the eventful history of a great European, which has had a decisive influence on the Munich-based company.

    The 15 x 8.5 centimetre paper was invented at the end of the 1960s as a cashless and cross-border means of payment. In 2019 the eurocheque, as it is officially called, will celebrate its 50th birthday: The official starting signal was given on 1 May 1969.
