The new Visa cards that plant trees

 

 

Thanks to the new, sustainable Visa cards, which are unique in Luxembourg, we can fight together against the damaging effects of climate change by planting trees in Luxembourg and Bangladesh.

200 transactions = 1 tree planted in Luxembourg or Bangladesh

 

From March 2021, for every 200 transactions made using any of the new, sustainable Visa cards, Banque Raiffeisen commits to planting 1 tree in collaboration with the foundation Hëllef fir d'Natur from natur&ëmwelt and Friendship Luxembourg.

 

 

You want to plant a tree?
Just pay with your Visa card!

With the new range of Visa cards, helping in the fight against climate change has never been so easy. All you have to do is what you are already doing!

Book a trip on the Internet, buy something in a shop, place an online order... with each transaction you make using your new Visa card, you are contributing to reforestation efforts without even thinking about it!

 

Sustainable, eye-catching cards with great benefits

Because caring for the forest also involves preserving the entire ecosystem around it, the new Visa cards boast a new design with a nod to biodiversity: a butterfly wing, a parrot feather, a flower and an agave.

Available in Basic, Classic, Gold and Platinum, they offer you a number of benefits and are tailored to your needs.

Repairing the damage caused by bark beetles

 

You may have noticed that a number of spruces in our forests have been sick and dying in the last few years. Have you ever wondered why? It’s because of the bark beetle, a species of beetle that lays rows of eggs underneath the tree bark, disrupting sap circulation and killing the trees. The only solution is to cut down the sick trees so that they don’t contaminate other nearby trees. Planting trees allows us to restore these devastated forests and rejuvenate them as quickly as possible so that they can continue playing their vital role for the environment.
