Our Green Impact
Climate change is unquestionable, so we’re on a path to make banking effortlessly sustainable.
Together we’ve planted
13 million trees!
And with every passing moment, we’re planting more! Easy Green users are reforesting the world as they spend.
We’re dedicated to making it super easy for our users fight climate change. From planting trees as they spend, to earning interest on entirely green investments, bunqers are making the world greener every day.
How we plant
Together with our tree planting partners veritree and Eden Reforestation Projects, we’re planting mangrove trees across restoration projects in Kenya and Madagascar. These projects create jobs with fair wages for locals, and contribute to restoring deforested areas.
Thanks to the bunq community, we’re planting trees on our dedicated tree planting site in Kenya, a country that’s been hit hard by deforestation. Not only do these trees contribute to a greener future, they also help wildlife recover and allow communities to thrive.
Deforestation is having a massive impact not only on the environment, but also on the lives of those living in poverty. Together with our partner Eden Reforestation Projects, we decided to do something about it.
To celebrate our first 10,000,000 trees, we partnered with Trees for All to plant our very first trees in Europe in the forests of Leersum in the Netherlands.
Our green journey
Green finance beginnings
We took our commitment to being more sustainable to new levels this month! Not only did we partner up with Eden Reforestation Projects who’ll be planting our trees, we launched the beautifully crafted bunq Metal Card made from sustainable stainless steel!
1 million trees!
In less than a year, our users have planted over a million trees – just by using their bunq cards. That’s the equivalent of 380,000,000kg of CO2 captured over 25 years! Here’s to another million...
