Credit One Bank and the Arbor Day Foundation partner to promote reforestation and community forestry

Credit One Bank joined forces with the Arbor Day Foundation in a new partnership aimed at supporting reforestation and community forestry projects. The bank's reforestation efforts will be spearheaded by customers who opt-in for paperless accounts. For each account enrollment, a tree will be planted in a forest of great need. The bank will also organise urban forestry events that engage employees in projects to promote tree planting and teach the importance of community canopy.

The paperless campaign will help restore forestland in the Klamath Falls Basin, which was damaged by the 2021 Bootleg Fire, one of the most destructive wildfires in Oregon's history. The project aims to restore critical habitats for Pacific Northwestern wildlife and improve water quality in the Klamath River for various fish species, including the endangered Lost River sucker fish. Credit One Bank's local planting partner will hold community projects in Las Vegas, Nevada, the bank's headquarters, to help improve air quality and mitigate the urban heat island effect.

The Arbor Day Foundation CEO, Dan Lambe, stated, ‘Trees are desperately needed in both forests and communities to help solve some of our most urgent issues, such as droughts, fires, and excessive heat waves. Credit One Bank has embodied our mission by inviting their community to engage in a variety of unique, tangible efforts that support tree planting in the right place, at the right time.’

For the past 50 years, the Arbor Day Foundation has helped plant almost 500 million trees worldwide, working with a global network of partners to facilitate projects that empower organisations of all sizes to reach their sustainability goals. The Foundation recently launched an initiative to plant 500 million trees by June 2027 in forests and communities that need them most.

One of the most effective ways we can support nature’s prosperity is by planting trees. Trees will, in turn, support habitat restoration, conserve biodiversity, and capture carbon. At DGB Group, we believe in the power of trees, and that is why our large-scale reforestation and afforestation projects are designed to pave the path for a greener, more sustainable future.
