Our Mission

Triodos Bank’s mission is to help create a society that protects and promotes quality of life and human dignity for all. Since 1980, our sustainable financial products have enabled individuals and organisations to use their money in ways that benefit people and the environment.

How we make a difference

Triodos Bank focuses its activities across three overarching themes: Environmental, Cultural and Social. Together, these cover a broad range of sectors – from renewable energy, organic farming and social housing through to retail, charities and education.

Our Lending Criteria

We lend to businesses and entrepreneurs from a variety of sectors all making positive impact. It is embedded in our mission to only lend money to organisations in the real economy working to bring about positive and lasting change. To achieve this, we follow clearly defined criteria for our everyday lending decisions, making us accountable to our savers and investors.

Our positive approach to sustainable lending involves:

  • identifying sustainable sectors where we can stimulate innovation in business
  • selecting businesses and projects that will provide real social, cultural or environmental benefits
  • evaluating both the quality of the application and the motivation of the people applying for loans
  • ensuring selected projects meet our absolute criteria and minimum standards, which measure their potential effect on people or planet
  • financing clearly defined activities or projects within each organisation
  • monitoring closely how a loan is used
  • publishing the details of every single organisation we lend to; which means our savers and investors can see exactly how we’re using their money
