03 Energy & Climate
For a transition from a carbon-based economy to a sustainable economy, it's essential to reduce energy demand, to use energy as efficiently as possible, and to invest massively in renewable energy systems, while switching to low carbon fuels.

The amount of CO2 emissions that are avoided by the projects funded by Triodos Bank per year
Our current energy consumption causes huge environmental damage: we're burning resources that belong to future generations
If the temperature of planet earth increases by this amount or more, climate change will have potentially catastrophic results
To limit the global temperature increase to 2 C, our carbon output needs to stay below 450 ppm (parts per million). Triodos Bank even advocates decreasing output back below 350 ppm
The total amount of wind, solar, hydro and biomass power production capacity currently funded by Triodos Bank
All the crises the world faces - energy, climate, food, financial - are connected. Fighting one means fighting them all
By the end of 2011 Triodos Bank, and its climate and energy funds financed over 360 renewables projects across Europe, including 204 wind farms, 131 solar plants and various small biomass and hydro projects
The amount of renewable energy produced by the projects financed by Triodos Bank is equivalent to the electricity use of around 1,500,000 European households

Triodos Bank in action
We're working to reduce our own CO2 emissions in a variety of ways. First, by reducing energy consumption wherever possible - for example, by printing less and cutting down on business travel.
Our new office buildings are designed and constructed using carefully selected sustainable materials and the most energy-efficient lighting, heating and cooling technologies. We use electricity from renewable energy sources only.
For our buildings in the Netherlands, some of this energy comes from wind farms financed by the Bank. Our remaining CO2 emissions from natural gas consumption, paper consumption, business travel and commuting are compensated.
