TRIODES BANK LAUNCHES PERSONAL CURRENT ACCOUNT IN THE UK

25 Apr TRIODES BANK LAUNCHES PERSONAL CURRENT ACCOUNT IN THE UK

Triodos, a leading sustainable bank in Europe opened registrations for its first ever UK personal current account this week. The account, described as the most sustainable current account ever brought to the UK market, will begin with a phased rollout this summer.

Triodos has been operating in the UK for over 20 years and only lends money to organisations or projects that are making a positive social, cultural or environmental impact. Beneficiaries of the bank’s loans include charities, social housing providers, organic farmers and renewable energy projects.

The personal current account is launching in response to the growing consumer demand for sustainable banking products. Triodos’ UK Managing Director Bevis Watts commented:

“We want people to really think about what their bank is doing with their money. Money doesn’t have to be invested in the arms trade, fossil fuels and tobacco – it can be used to do good things that help build the society we want to live in.

“For many years now, consumers have had the opportunity to align their values with the food they choose to buy, the transport they take, and the energy they consume. Now they have that choice with their daily finances, using their money as an irresistible force for good that works towards positive social, cultural, and environmental change.”
