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.

Our commitment

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.
