How bunqers contribute

All bunq users plant trees automatically by paying with their bunq card, referring a friend to bunq, by spinning the Wheel of Fortune in the bunq app. For every tree earned in bunq, we finance the planting of a real one.

Our planting sites

bunq has active projects in Mteza Creek and Tana Salt (both in Southern Kenya), and completed a few others across Kenya and Madagascar. These places were chosen for their significance in environmental preservation and community support.

More than trees

Besides offsetting CO2, our users are stabilizing coastlines, nurturing marine life, and supporting local livelihoods in a region where the majority of the population lives below the poverty line. By joining hands with veritree, we’ve committed to four of the UN’s sustainable development goals: no poverty, decent work and economic growth, climate action and life on land.

Focused on mangroves

Mangrove trees are exceptional carbon sinks! One mangrove tree can make up for 12.3 kg of CO2 per year. They are widely considered to be the best trees to fight climate change, because not only do they offset CO2, they also filter pollutants out of our water and act as nurseries for marine life.

Come and visit our tree

Mangrove trees are also rare champions in saltwater environments, and notably play a crucial role in protecting communities from natural disasters. If you're eager to witness these environmental superheroes up close, you can visit our very own mangrove at Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam!

Our impact so far

Since 2019, bunqers have already planted over 19 million trees, offsetting almost 5 million tonnes of CO2! To put that into perspective: that’s over 340 thousands studio apartments filled with trees, and could be compared to more than a million cars being taken off the road for one year!
