Everyday banking, with extraordinary values

1 January 2019

We know that switching to green energy is one of the single biggest things you can do to combat climate change. But did you know you can also choose a bank that that helps protect the planet?

Triodos is a sustainable bank that only lends to organisations that make a positive impact, protect the planet, or support local communities. They’ve worked with us since we first began, when they financed the build of our first windmill in 1996.

Our founder Dale Vince explains: “Back in 1996, I’d already spent five years of my life trying to build our first windmill, with no qualifications or experience in the energy sector.

“It was Triodos that had the courage to back me to actually build it. We now supply over 200,000 customers and make green energy from 74 windmills across the UK.”

Like us, Triodos share our values of building a sustainable future, through supporting projects that are ethical and good for the environment. And because they publish details of all the organisations they lend to, you can be sure your money is making a positive difference.

If you’re new to Triodos and open a personal current account, savings account, or a cash ISA then once your balance reaches £100, you’ll get £40 to spend online at the Ethical Superstore.  Visit triodos.co.uk/ecotricity for full terms and conditions.
