AIB's Youth Reforestation Initiative
AIB has promised to plant 90,000 native Irish trees over the next three years on behalf of new AIB second-level student account holders, as part of their Youth Reforestation Initiative.
This initiative acknowledges the concerns of young people across Ireland and globally regarding the combined climate and biodiversity crises and sets out to help create new native Irish woodlands by planting a tree for every second-level student account opened. AIB is committed to sustainability and has put it at the heart of its strategy, with an ambitious plan to reach Carbon Neutrality across the bank’s operations by 2030. This partnership with Coillte Nature and Forestry Partners is another action that AIB is taking in line with its sustainability agenda to back our customers and respond to the issues that matter most to the young people of Ireland.
