Turin, 4 June 2021
To mark World Environment Day on 5 June, FCA Bank and Leasys are renewing their support for environmental protection by relaunching the "Tree on board" project at an international level. The project is the brainchild of a partnership with Treedom, a platform that enables people to plant a tree from a distance and follow its history online.
The initiative will be active in all European countries where FCA Bank and Leasys operate: a thin green line that will link Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Spain and many other countries in the name of eco-sustainable mobility and respect for the planet.
Long committed to reducing CO2 emissions and promoting a revolution in sustainable mobility, the two companies of the FCA Bank Group are offering exclusive green solutions dedicated to electric and hybrid models, tailor-made for each market: for every new loan or rental agreement signed, a tree from the large FCA Bank and Leasys forest will be donated.
Established in 2020, the forest now has more than 14,000 trees and over 4 tons of CO2 absorbed. Trees adopted by new customers will be looked after by farmers located in various parts of the world, particularly in Africa and Latin America, who will tend to them and benefit from their fruit, with the possibility for the customer to know exactly where they are, give them a name and follow their growth.

Leasys, a Stellantis Brand and a subsidiary of FCA Bank, a 50:50 joint venture between Stellantis and Crédit Agricole, was established in September 2001. Leasys offers a complete and innovative system of mobility services to individuals, professionals and businesses of all sizes: from short, medium and long-term rentals to peer-to-peer car sharing via the U Go platform and I-Link. At the end of 2019, it launched the first car subscription service in Italy with CarCloud. With the Clickar brand, Leasys is also one of the leading Italian online and offline retailers of pre-owned company cars to individuals, professionals and companies. Headquartered in Italy, Leasys began a process of internationalization in 2017 by opening multiple offices throughout Europe: today the company operates in Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Denmark, Greece and Poland, managing a fleet that will have over 400,000 vehicles by the end of 2021. In June 2019, the company launched the Leasys Mobility Stores, physical outlets with a grassroots presence across Italy. The Stores, which provide customers access to all the mobility services provided by Leasys, are now available in France as well and will open soon also in the other European countries where the company is operational. With the launch of the first totally electrified Mobility Store in Torino Caselle airport, Leasys is on track to become a key operator also for sustainable mobility. In fact, thanks to the installation of over 1,200 charging stations in all the stores, at the end of 2020, Leasys had Italy’s largest private electrified network. In 2021, the electrification project will continue also in the European countries in which Leasys operates. For more information: www.leasys.com
