As you know AIB are forcing customers to swap to electronic card readers instead of the old code cards (100 single-use verification numbers) for online banking. Mine arrived yesterday, and what’s printed on the accompanying leaflet?
“We want to do our bit for the environment. That’s why AIB has created ‘Add more green’, a range of environmentally-friendly initiatives that will help us and our customers create a greener world.”

Nothing overly controversial — I just think there’s a conflict between claiming a ‘going green’ mission and replacing a fairly low-impact security system (code cards) with thousands of new plastic-and-electronic devices.
