Goal doubled: over 300,000 trees planted
150,000 trees for our 150th anniversary: that was our ambitious goal. For the past ten years, we have been revitalizing large areas of forest with site-appropriate deciduous tree species such as red oak and copper beech. Worldwide, more than 4,500 colleagues and their families have shouldered the spades and participated in tree planting campaigns in nearby forests. By the end of 2020, the number of trees planted has exceeded 300,000. The Germany-wide “e-Safe” campaign contributed to this success: Deutsche Bank plants a tree for every newly activated digital mailbox in Online Banking. More than 150,000 of our customers have already taken advantage of this opportunity, making a sustainable contribution to the protection of drinking water forests.
