Turn your savings into a force for good
Want to help Friends of the Earth’s work campaigning for solutions to environmental problems? Would you like your savings to have a positive impact on social, cultural or environmental issues? Then show your commitment with the Earth Saver account. As well as earning interest on your savings, you’ll have the assurance that your money is supporting initiatives and policies in favour of people and the planet.
It’s for anyone aged 16 or over who has £100 or more to save. You can open an Earth Saver in your name, or jointly with another person. The more you save, the more we’ll pay directly to Friends of the Earth – we'll donate the equivalent of 0.25% of the average annual balance of your account. And if you want to, you can choose to donate all or a percentage of your interest, too.
A cause for your concern
Opening our Earth Saver account means straightaway you’re making a difference. The more you save, the more interest you earn, and the more we’ll donate to Friends of the Earth. And it’s not just a better return on your savings – your money is helping tackle some of the biggest environmental issues.
Know how we use your savings
At Triodos, we believe being ethical means being open. We publish a list of every organisation we lend to, so you know exactly where your money goes. No other bank offers you such a clear link between your savings and the positive difference they make.
