Reporting and Transparency

Ecosia does not operate behind closed doors. We publish our financial reports monthly, as well as frequent updates from our tree planting projects and partners, so our users can see what happens with our income and where and how their trees are going in the ground.

Financial reports

We value transparency and publish monthly financial reports so you can see exactly how much money we make and how much we spend on planting trees. In these reports you’ll find all of the projects we’ve supported that month, thanks to people like you!

Regeneration reports

Every year we publish a Regeneration Report. Think of it as a sustainability report that goes multiple steps further. 

Our regeneration reports are audited by ClimatePartner. With their help and supervision, we outline how much CO2 we emit, how much we capture, and how much we prevent from being emitted in the first place. 

While the trees we’ve planted sequester huge amounts of carbon dioxide, we do not use them to offset emissions. Instead, we try not to generate emissions in the first place, offset those that are unavoidable with high-quality carbon credits, and generate twice as much renewable energy than what is required to power Ecosia searches.
