Business Borrowing

Shared values. Shared goals.

If you have plans to grow, we’d like to help. We can provide loans and overdrafts, and the service of a dedicated Relationship Manager who understands your sector and will be your point of contact.

Triodos Bank is a different kind of bank. Our focus on lending money to organisations and projects that benefit people and the planet gives us in-depth knowledge within those sectors that make a positive impact on society, culture and the environment.

And, because we understand the opportunities and challenges that organisations face firsthand, we can provide a flexible, genuine and personal service you won’t find at other banks.

How we can help

We generally lend between £100,000 and £15 million a project, although we can consider larger loans.

You can borrow money for a wide range of purposes, including:

  • Commercial mortgage
  • Property purchase or refurbishment 
  • Cash flow management
  • Renewable energy projects
  • Refinance or consolidate existing debt

If you need to borrow a smaller amount, please do let us know. We can put you in touch with one of our referral partners, who may be able to help.
