Biography

Triodos Bank is a social bank lending to organisations and businesses with social and environmental objectives. The Triodos Greenfund (Netherlands) and the Triodos Renewable Energy Fund (UK) are experts in wind, solar and small hydro finance. Triodos Renewable Energy for Development Fund is financing solar and other renewables enterprises and projects in developing countries.

We make loans to sustainable environmental businesses and initiatives, from organic farms and food producers, through renewable energy companies, to eco-development schemes. We also focus on initiatives that help people develop and act as free and responsible citizens. This can cover everything from schools and medical centres, through arts and cultural activities, to community projects of all kinds. In addition, we fund businesses of any kind whose key objectives are to add value to society or the environment, from Fair Trade retailers or wholesale traders, through housing associations and eco-tourism initiatives, to manufacturers of environmentally responsible products. 

Triodos has financed the Haverigg II Wind Farm in Cumbria, a wind farm project at Caton Moor in Lancashire, a single wind turbine in the Orkney Islands, and the Beochlich Hydro Electric project in Argyll in Scotland.
