Who we finance

A bank, a network and a community

So how are we different to other commercial banks? Well, for starters, we will only ever finance companies, institutions and projects that clearly benefit society and the environment. And we do this with the ongoing support of organisations who want to realise the far-reaching potential benefits of saving and investing with us.

Building a powerful network

Triodos Bank helps individuals, institutions and businesses connect with inspiring entrepreneurs and groundbreaking organisations, and put their money to work in powerful, positive ways. Together, our collective impact can be a major factor in bringing about change for the better.

Wide-ranging investments

We lend only to organisations we believe in. Those who meet our strict ethical lending criteria  and work tirelessly to make the world a better place. But it’s about much more than solar panels and organic cheese – we’re continually expanding our positive influence by working across all sectors. From organic farms and renewable energy companies, to housing co-operatives, local healthcare initiatives, and all kinds of charities and community projects – we’re here to work with and support those striving for a more sustainable future.


A good business stays open

What’s more, we believe ethical banking depends on openness and trust, so we publish details online of every single organisation we lend to. We’re the only commercial bank that does this.
