Fingerprint Cards joins EICC, announces new deployments
Founded in 2004, the EICC is a nonprofit coalition of electronics, retail, auto and toy companies committed to supporting the rights and wellbeing of workers and communities affected by the global electronics supply chain. EICC members follow a common Code of Conduct and members can utilize a range of EICC training and assessment tools to support continuous improvement in the social, environmental and ethical responsibility of their supply chains.
“We see the EICC as an important organization within the field of sustainability as many of our customers and suppliers are related to the electronic industry,” explained Fingerprint Cards Head of Sustainability, Angelica Berg. ” Hence, we share some of the same challenges that EICC focus on.”
“By this membership, we can learn from, and contribute to the sustainability work EICC is doing,” added Fingerprint Cards CEO, Christian Fredrikson. “Through EICC we can do this together with our customers and suppliers as many of them already are EICC members which I see as important for us to advance our sustainability work.”
The Swedish biometrics company also announced recent deployments of its FPC1145 and FPC1035 fingerprint sensors.
At IFA 2017 in Berlin, Blackberry launched KeyOne Black Edition and HiSense launched A2 Pro, each featuring the FPC1145 sensor. A Japanese OEM also announced three new smartphone models featuring the FPC1145.
Europe’s biggest tech trade show also saw the launch of the Moto X4 and LG’s V30, each featuring the FPC1035 sensor.
