FinTrU to plant over 700 trees to celebrate 7th birthday and employee milestone

FinTrU has today announced their commitment to plant over 700 trees, one for each employee, as part of an environmental and sustainability pledge.

On Wednesday 16 December, the company will celebrate its 7th birthday and mark the occasion through an environmental project in conjunction with their ECO Committee and Belfast City Council in 2021.

Following the planting of the initial 700 trees, FinTrU will continue to plant a tree per employee each year as the company continues to grow. FinTrU is carrying out this initiative through the Belfast Metropolitan Residents Group as part of their Million trees over 15 years proposal. The initiative will take place following the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions.

Steven Murtland, FinTrU Chief Financial Officer and ECO Committee Senior Sponsor, said “As the fastest growing company in Northern Ireland, FinTrU has a responsibility to have a social purpose, not just in terms of high quality employment, but also with regards to sustainability. FinTrU cares passionately about the environment and has a number of eco initiatives in place including environmentally friendly water bottles, keep cups, umbrellas, masks, stationery and annual offsetting of carbon emissions. FinTrU’s ECO Committee also regularly holds internal environmental education sessions for the company. As we celebrate reaching 700 employees, as well as our 7th birthday, it is important that reflect on what we can do to help our environment.”
