Social

Community and housing

Triodos Bank finances housing associations because they provide affordable housing for the people who need it most. And we lend to not-for-profit employment programmes, youth help centres, integration programmes and more.

Our vision on community projects and social housing

There are many social organisations and charities developing commercially viable approaches to tackling social problems. At the same time, we see a growing number of social entrepreneurs: individuals creating new business models driven by a social motive to serve a specific group in their community or in society, underpinned by the notion of disciplined business management.

The choices we make

We have set priorities about what to finance and how to extend our impact through our activities based on our experience and expertise in these sectors.

Managing and reporting impact

We aim to be a leader in impact-driven reporting in the financial industry. Our focus is on managing impact in ways that improve people’s quality of life and on communicating this impact to our stakeholders.

Case study

Triodos Bank enabled 30 tenants to acquire their building and transfer it to self-management by the tenants.
