Plant a tree – an EIB and WeForest initiative

13 September 2017

In July 2007, the European Investment Bank launched its first Climate Awareness Bond. To mark the 10th anniversary of this milestone, the EIB has partnered with NGO WeForest in a project to make the planet greener – an additional way for us to contribute to the fight against global warming through reducing the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

How does it work?

For every person who fills out this form, the EIB will plant a tree in Ethiopia or India, two countries with a huge potential for forest restauration, with the help of WeForest.

The project will start in the second half of 2017 and will be carried out over several months. Information on project advancement will be made available on the EIB website.
