Triodos Bank takes part in events in many ways, whether sending you literature to display at your events, taking a stand at an exhibition, or giving presentations.
Word of mouth is the most powerful way for people to learn about the work and values of the Bank. With this in mind, we try to participate in as wide a range of events as possible, creating the opportunity for people to hear about our work first hand.
Bristol Doors Open Day, 12 September 2015
Doors Open Day is a once-a-year chance to look behind closed doors and discover the city’s hidden treasures. You can explore fascinating buildings, join guided tours and enjoy a range of events and activities – all free for the day.
About Triodos Bank, Deanery Road
We moved into our new home in Spring 2012. A great deal of planning, thought and research has gone into every element of our building. We’ve rigorously challenged suppliers and ourselves in our choices to ensure that everything brought into the building has a conscious decision behind it. Join a guided tour of our building that proudly showcases innovation, excellence, sustainability and entrepreneurship.
About Triodos Renewables, Avonmouth Wind Farm
Opened in December 2013, Triodos Renewables’ 4-turbine site can provide enough green electricity to meet the demand of as many as 4,950 UK homes. At the Doors Open Day you can come and learn more about the project, get up close to one of our turbines and chat with the team who operate the wind farm.
To manage access and restricted car parking, registration in advance is essential.
Please note: As part of the Bristol Doors Open Day, and as a separate visit, Wessex Water are also offering guided tours (approx 1.5 hours) of their Avonmouth Sewage Treatment Works. For further details about this and other venues taking part visit bristoldoorsopenday.org.uk

Do you need an expert to talk about ethical finance at your event?
While mainstream banking struggles to come to terms with an unprecedented financial crisis, many ethical banks have flourished. Triodos is one of them. We’re Europe’s leading sustainable bank and have several engaging speakers available to discuss this, as well as a range of issues such as sustainability and finance, solutions for a sustainable world, social investment, mission-connected investment (or how charities can use their assets more effectively), and investing equity in social businesses. They can also discuss our current activity in the UK and Ireland, our future plans and the range of ethical issues we are engaged in.
Triodos Bank is taking part in the GO GREEN initiative which is run in partnership with Bristol 2015 European Green Capital, Business West and Low Carbon South West.
The initiative aims to help businesses be better in five key areas: planning and resilience, travel and transport, energy and efficiency, sustainable sourcing and happy and healthy living.
