bunq, an Amsterdam-based challenger bank is on a green mission and has contributed to the environment by attempting to reduce the CO2 emissions drastically. Founded in 2012 by Ali Niknam, bunq is all set to radically change the traditional banking industry. Of late, it has been quite successful accounting to twice the user deposits in 2018 with the same increasing continuously.
In an attempt to make the world a greener place without any special efforts, bunq came up with the Green Card. It is a metal card, which plants a tree for every €100 spent. As users spend, bunq will plant trees. It can be anything such as groceries, train tickets, holiday expenses, etc. The Green Card is itself better for the planet as it is made of metal, which lasts 50% longer than a regular plastic card.
