Our Green Impact
Climate change is unquestionable, so we’re on a path to make banking effortlessly sustainable.
Together we’ve planted
10 million trees!
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 Eden Reforestation Projects, we’re planting mangrove trees across restoration projects in Marotia, Madagascar and Kwasasi & Magumba, Kenya. The projects create jobs with fair wages for locals, and contribute to regreening areas that had previously been deforested.
Where we’re planting trees
Only 10% of Kenya’s forests remain after years of logging and charcoal production. In our fight against climate change, we’re planting as many trees as possible while offering employment to Kenyans living in poverty.
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.
We are planting a total of 1,250 trees and shrubs in Leersum. The goal of the project is to improve the quality of existing forests and further expand them in the Netherlands.
On the peatland destroyed by forest fires in Borneo, bunq users will plant a mixture of native tree species that occur naturally to help reforest the area.
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...
New project started in Kenya
We're growing so much that it was time to start another reforestation project, and plant trees in Kenya!
