The company was chosen from among more than 300 entrants to receive the Chamber’s Intel Environmental Responsibility & Sustainability Award. About 300 companies were nominated for the Austin Chamber’s Business Awards.

HID Global’s sustainability initiatives focus on minimising the company’s carbon footprint, reducing operating costs, and creating green products and solutions for its customers. Key initiatives include a commitment to green building design for all existing operations, remodels and new construction, and an ongoing focus on global best practices for managing sustainability over the long term.
