Marsh Finance partners with Gift-a-Tree to drive environmental impact

Date published: 27 July 2023

Marsh Finance, a Rochdale-based car finance company, has partnered with a global reforestation initiative committed to fighting deforestation and promoting wildlife conservation.

Under the partnership with Gift-a-Tree, Marsh Finance will plant a tree for every car finance loan paid out.

Marsh Finance has made an initial investment in 20,000 trees and will be increasing this number in the future.

During a recent visit to Marsh Finance headquarters, Gift-a-Tree's founder, Andy Fields, shared his inspiring journey and emphasised the significance of preserving the environment.

This visit served as a catalyst for Marsh Finance to launch the initiative that aims to make a positive impact on both customers and the surrounding ecosystem.

Customers will also be able to track the growth of their tree and even visit it personally.

By joining forces with Gift-a-Tree, Marsh Finance aims to achieve environmental benefits, including:

  • Re-wilding: Restoring meadows and planting trees to encourage the return of diverse wildlife species to their natural habitats.
  • Carbon dioxide capture: Trees act as natural filters, absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere and providing essential oxygen.
  • Cooling effect: In an era of rising temperatures, trees play a vital role in cooling their surroundings, mitigating the impacts of climate change.
  • Soil stability: Trees contribute to soil stability, optimising agricultural productivity and facilitating the growth of abundant crops.
