Organic Food (Environment)
Café Maitreya, Bristol, is an organic café-restaurant serving fresh vegetarian and vegan food using fair trade products where practical.
Apart from being environmentally friendly, Organic Food doesn’t use hydrogenated fats and controversial additives including aspartame, tartrazine, MSG, leading to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Lending in this sector include food shops, butchers and restaurants.
Energy is a necessity in modern life but the current dependence on fossil fuels to provide it has a high environmental and social impact. We believe that a fundamental transition is needed away from a carbon based economy to a renewable one. By lending and investing in this sector we try to stimulate this transition, with our main focus on financing solar, wind and hydro energy.
