Energy and Climate

For a transition from a carbon-based economy to a sustainable economy, it's essential to reduce energy demand, to use energy as efficiently as possible, and to invest particularly in renewable energy systems, while switching to low carbon fuels.

Our expertise facts and figures
X 2,000,000+ tons

The amount of CO2 emissions that are avoided by the projects funded by Triodos Bank per year

X High impact

Our current energy consumption causes huge environmental damage; we're burning resources that belong to future generations

X 2 C

If the temperature of planet earth increases by this amount or more, climate change will have potentially catastrophic results

X Freeze at 350 PPM

To limit the global temperature increase to 2°C, our carbon output needs to stay below 450 ppm (parts per million). Triodos Bank even advocates decreasing output back below 350 ppm

X 100% renewables

Our long-term goal is a complete transition from carbon-based to renewable energy

X 2,134 Megawatts

The total amount of wind and solar power production capacity currently financed by Triodos

X 360+ projects

By the end of 2011 Triodos Bank, and its climate and energy funds financed over 360 renewables projects across Europe, including 204 wind farms, 131 solar plants and various small biomass and hydro projects

X 1,500,000

The amount of renewable energy produced by the projects financed by Triodos Bank is equivalent to the electricity use of around 1,500,000 European households

How Triodos acts

We're working to reduce our own CO2 emissions in a variety of ways. First, by reducing energy consumption wherever possible - for example, by printing less and cutting down on business travel. Our new office buildings are designed and constructed using carefully selected sustainable materials and the most energy-efficient lighting, heating and cooling technologies. We use electricity from renewable energy sources only. Our remaining CO2 emissions from natural gas consumption, paper consumption, business travel and commuting are compensated.
