Digital bank Bunq helps users plant over 40,000 trees in under two months
The equivalent to 13,000 flights from Paris to New York.
The milestone comes from the European challenger bank’s recently launched Bunq Green Card, a metal card that plants a tree for every €100 spent.
The eco-friendly card has been so successful that in under two months Bunq users have offset a global reduction of emissions by 12.3m kg, translating to the over 13,000 flights.
Speaking about the success, Niknam remarked, “it’s amazing to see how the introduction of our Bunq Green Card can lead to serious impact”.
Bunq also announced a collaboration with automation group Zapier allowing its users to integrate Bunq with over 1,500 apps such as Quickbooks, Xero, Gmail, Slack and MailChimp, creating an even more streamlined service for Bunq Business users.
Bunq remains a Euro-only bank despite launching in the UK in Autumn 2019.
