The National Bank of Hungary (MNB) is offsetting its annual carbon footprint with large-scale forest planting and lawn reconstruction in the Danube-Dráva National Park, near Drávaszentes (250 km southwest of Budapest), in close cooperation with WWF Hungary, writes uzletem.hu.

The central bank was the first to offset the harmful emissions of its 2019 Green Conference by establishing an evergreen forest in the settlement of Pápateszér (125 km west of Budapest).

As part of the Green Program it launched in 2019, the MNB wants to be at the forefront of the "greening" of its operations in Hungary, according to the central bank's website.
