Plant trees rather than harvest mountains of paper.

Plant trees rather than harvest mountains of paper.

Our promise

Promise (over)fulfilled!Our promise was to save 2.5 million account statements in paper form! By the end of March 2024, we had saved 2.9 million account statements! Our customers all took part and now receive their account statements conveniently in their letterboxes. In return, we are planting 100 trees in Lübeck.

We would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to everyone involved!
For your support. For the environment. For all of us. 

By the way... we are still planting... Tree 74 has already been planted into the ground of Lübeck.

Trees instead of paper piles

Trees are among the largest and oldest organisms in the world. Some trees are over 500 years old and provide treasures and shelter for many inhabitants of the forest and meadows. We also like to relax in the cool shade of  trees and enjoy the good climate and pleasant air during a walk under trees. By the way, we strengthen our own  immune system with walking in the forest.

In addition, trees, like all plants on earth, produce oxygen by photosynthesis and thus make a fundamental  contribution to our survival. After the oceans, forests are the most important oxygen producers on earth. In addition, a tree is also a supplier of wood, which is processed into furniture and paper or serves as firewood.


How can WE support?

We would also like to play our part in conserving, preserving and expanding the "tree" resource that is vital to our world. That is why we plant trees and think of our future.

With today's possibilities, it is easy to save paper and thus cut down fewer trees. With our online banking and self-service terminals, transfers from paper have actually long been a thing of the past.  

Even your account statements can be retrieved and stored digitally today. A printout is only necessary in rare cases and is still possible at any time.

Campaign details

Lets plant trees together in Lübeck

We were able to win over the Hanse-Obst e.V. association for our great project. Together we would like to keep our promise within the next few years. We will keep you informed about the progress of the project here.

The Hanse-Obst e.V. association has long stood for the cultivation of orchards in the Hanseatic city of Lübeck and the knowledge of the individual cultivation techniques of fruit growing in the chain from planting, cultivation, growth and maintenance care, grafting and breeding to harvesting, preservation and utilization of the fruits rich in vital substances and vitamins. We are pleased that together we will expand the Hanseatic city of Lübeck by -100- fruit trees in the next few years.


The starting signal has been given - the first trees are planted.Colorful autumn season, the trees turn their leaves and it is the best tree planting time of the year. Not only the fruits have to be harvested before the first frost, but young trees also have to be in the ground by then.

Thanks to your commitment, we have been able to save 1 million bank statements so far. So on 27.10.2022 the first of 100 trees was planted at our Ziegelstraße branch. With the support of our board member Oke Heuer, branch manager Philipp Pluschkat and our tree sponsor trainee Julia Mantowski, Mr. Egleder from the Hanse-Obst e.V. association planted a pear tree at our Ziegelstraße branch.

The planting is going on

On 1.11.2022, we planted another tree on the ground of the St. Lorenz daycare center (Kitawerk) in Travemünde. We had many little helpers who were eager to help us putting the tree in the ground together with Mr. Winko from the Travemünde branch and Mr. Egleder from the Hanse-Obst e.V. association.

12 trees for Kita Kinderstube Travemünde (Kinderwege)  

The children of the Kinderstube Travemünde daycare center (Kinderwege) were enthusiastic about the tree planting. Mr. Egleder from the Hanse-Obst e.V. association once again provided illustrative material on flora and fauna and lots of information for the little ones.

Mr. Böhme, Head of the Kücknitz and Travemünde branches, Emine Dogan, our S-corner consultant, and Jörn Sanftleben, Head of Corporate Communications and Legal Affairs, also lent a hand and got the trees into the ground. 

Lübecker Sportclub 1999 e.V. - we found space for five more trees

With the support of members of the Lübecker Sportclub 1999 e.V. and further support from our customer management, represented by Lyn Gappa and Johannes Müller, Head of Sales Communication and Control, Mr. Egleder from the Hanse Obst association planted five trees on the sportsclub site.

50 trees are already planted!

On 27th November 2023 we planted the 50th tree of our campaign. That means that we have already solved half of our promise!

This is only possible due to the support of our customers who already converted all account statements into digital ones. 

Please join our campaign!

Making the switch is easy. Either switch your statements directly to the electronic post box in online banking or your advisor will be happy to help you.

2024 - Off we go into the next planting season!
After we ended the year 2023 with the planting of the 51st tree on Moislinger Baum, the starting signal for the 2024 planting season was given on 26.03.2024 with the planting of 6 fruit trees on the school grounds of the Travemünde Stadtschule.

In beautiful sunshine, the children of the dolphin class and their teacher were enthusiastic and actively supported the planting of 5 trees - including rare varieties such as the "Sunburst" sweet cherry. On 27.03.2024, another tree was planted by the school's nature education group. In future, the various classes at Travemünde Stadtschule will take care of their respective trees as tree "godfathers" and help them grow.

Tree 57 - 7474 trees are now in the soil of Lübeck. The children at the Küstenknirpse daycare centre in Travemünde, the Reggio Hundert Welten daycare centre in Kücknitz and the Janosch-Korczak daycare centre in Thomas-Mann-Straße are delighted with the freshly planted fruit trees. Among other things, rare varieties such as the "Travemünde Pancake Apple Tree" and "Red Warrior" were planted - appropriate for the daycare centres.
