To have the biggest impact on our climate, our customers will be planting trees in partnership with the Mastercard priceless planet coalition. Each tree planted is based on the latest research on geography, biodiversity and weather conditions. Every tree is maintained for the first 5 years to make sure they survive and grow into adult trees. 

We are partnered with the award winning Prevented Ocean Plastic who work to clean our world of plastic bottles, as customers use their ekko debit card they will be collecting bottles before they enter our oceans and recycling them.

We’re busy testing and will be onboarding our first customers at the end of the summer

The ekko card is produced by Thames Technology and ekko became the first globally to adopt their eco-range. The card is produced using a post-industrial recycled PVC core along with a degradable overlay.

We’ll email you when your turn is up with your special code. We’re going to launch on a first-come first-serve basis so the sooner you join the waitlist, the better.

our money is safeguarded under the EU Electronic Money Directive 2009/110/EC and UK Electronic Money Regulations 2011. That means your money with ekko is held in a segregated client account at an authorised bank in accordance with the FCA requirements and the Electronic Money Regulations 2011. Due to this the money in your ekko account (which is an electronic money account) is required to be held in a different way to money in bank accounts. It must be held in a completely segregated manner, which means that ekko has no access to your money for its own purposes. If ekko (or any of its service providers) become insolvent, your money cannot be touched, and would continue to be kept safe within the bank for you.
