Boom! You’ve planted 5 million trees together

bunq community, you’ve done it again! You’ve just planted 5 million trees, offsetting over 1.6 million flights from New York to Paris.

How impressive is that?🙌
We couldn’t be prouder!💚

Times and times again, bunqers show their interest in sustainability. Thanks for being part of the green fight, making tomorrow brighter for all of us.

How are the trees planted?🌳

As an Easy Green user, every time you spend €100 with any of your bunq cards, our system confirms the payment and we donate a tree to Eden Reforestation Projects. They’re a non-profit organization on a mission to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration.

Eden is currently planting your trees in Kenya. Previously, 1 million trees have been planted in Madagascar. Learn more about this in your bunq app!

How is bunq green?🍃

While you’re doing the heavy lifting by growing forests faster than ever, we’re doing our part in making sure we support you in any way we can. Our green efforts also aim to be an example for the fintech industry. We’ve recently just ranked 3rd in a list of 27 financial institutions active in the Netherlands when it comes to our green efforts.

We’re offering you a climate neutral service by being a fully digital bank. That means no trips to branches and no unnecessary paperwork.

We’re financing projects that have a direct positive impact on the reduction of CO2, like green bonds or residentials mortgages.

We’re constantly measuring our climate footprint, read the latest about that here.

What’s next?🌈

Ten million! The sky’s the limit when it comes to what we can do as a community.
