Bristol 2015 European Green Capital
Triodos Bank are Official Supporters of Bristol 2015 European Green Capital
14-01-2015 | "We’re delighted to put the full weight of our support behind Bristol 2015. Triodos Bank has been an active part of the city’s green business community for 20 years now, and it’s our good fortune that the spotlight is shining on Bristol during our own anniversary year.
We chose Bristol as our UK base all those years ago because of the city’s sustainable credentials, as well as it feeling like a great place to be. It’s clear that we made the right decision.
It’s great to be part of a city that’s put so much time and effort into building a sustainable future. The people of Bristol have shown that with enough determination and vision, you can achieve remarkable things. It is hugely exciting to see that commitment recognised on an international stage; to be given the opportunity to share our experiences and celebrate our successes.
It’s important to remember that this is Bristol’s chance to shine as a reference point not only for other cities in the UK, but for the whole of Europe. As a European sustainable bank, that’s something that we at Triodos can be fantastically proud of."
Charles Middleton, Managing Director, Triodos BankEND
