Thales and Gamma expand partnership

Thales has announced that Gamma has selected its Eco-SIM cards in a drive to become more sustainable. Expanding on its partnership with Thales, Gamma plans to deploy EcoSIM across its network of channel partners and business mobile customers.

With 4.5 billion SIM cards produced every year – amassing to 20,000 tonnes of plastic – Thales’ Eco-SIM, developed in partnership with Veolia, is made from 100% recycled polystyrene recovered from discarded refrigerators. This next step in the partnership acts as a force for sustainability within the telecoms market, offering a green plastic supply flow to Gamma.

Thales has provided SIM cards, applications and device management services to Gamma since 2016. The switch to Eco-SIM provides an opportunity for both companies to enhance their ecological transformation and contribution to a circular economy.

Thales’ carbon offsetting programme also ensures its Eco-SIM is certified carbon neutral, and as a result, supports Gamma’s long-term commitment for safeguarding the environment reflected in its certification as a Carbon Neutral company.
