What's different about sustainable banking?
For us, sustainable banking means using money to bring about positive and lasting change; placing equal value on people, planet and profit.
We do that by financing companies, institutions and projects that add cultural value and benefit people and the environment, with the support of savers and investors who want to help make the world a better place - as well as a good return on their money.
Crucially, our definition of sustainable banking means that this is all we do: we only invest in sustainable enterprises and we only use the 'real' money entrusted to us by savers and investors - just like banks used to do, in the days before derivatives and credit default swaps.
In addition, we believe that truly sustainable banking demands complete transparency about how we use our customers' money. So every year we publish details of every single organisation we lend to.
