Trillion Trees is a joint venture for forest protection made up of three of the world’s largest conservation organizations: BirdLife International, Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

Trillion Trees was founded in 2016 with a clear aim: to ensure one trillion trees have been regrown, saved from loss, and better protected around the world by 2050.

“Our three organisations – BirdLife International, WCS and WWF – have come together to speed up conservation and climate action so that we can build a world where both people and nature thrive. Right now, something is out of kilter with our planet and we need to do something about it,” says John Lotspeich, Executive Director of Trillion Trees. 

“If you’ve chosen to bank with Starling, you’re already thinking about how banking can be different. In the same way, we’re continually exploring how conservation can be different – how it can be truly embedded within forest communities and in the ecosystems and economies that surround them,” he added.

Anne Boden, CEO and founder of Starling Bank, said: “We know that many of our customers care deeply about the environment.”

“Our partnership with Trillion Trees will enable us to make a permanent positive change to the planet which aligns perfectly with our desire to grow sustainably,” she added.

Starling Bank will make a donation of £3 for each bank account, which is successfully opened with Starling Bank as a result of a referral under this scheme.
