Planet Home Lending launches tree-planting campaign

Mortgage lender and servicer Planet Home Lending has partnered with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) in a project that helps define the company's brand while sequestering its carbon footprint.

As part of its larger ‘Planet with a Purpose’ initiative, Planet Home Lending pledges three trees for each closed loan this year, up to 25,000 trees. Meanwhile, the NFF will plant the trees in national forests where they are most needed across the country.

"We strive to be good corporate citizens, valuing and beneficially affecting our communities, society and the planet," said Michael Dubeck, CEO and president of Planet Home Lending. "This tree-planting partnership with the National Forest Foundation allows us to define, promote and enhance the green aspect of our company while showing that it is possible to be fiscally successful and environmentally conscious."

"This company was founded on the idea that we have a responsibility to the planet and the communities we serve. Partnering with the National Forest Foundation will help our employees, customers and business partners feel good about the positive effect we collectively make on our planet with every loan we close."

"We are incredibly proud to partner with Planet Home Lending," said Wes Swaffar, director of reforestation and partnerships at the NFF. "Partnerships like these with companies that are passionate about the environment help us work toward our goal of planting 50 million trees in our national forests."
