benefits sustainable projects.
Triodos Bank offsets 100% of its CO2 emissions. Its environmental policy is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in three distinct steps. Firstly, it aims to take as many energy-saving measures as possible. Secondly, any essential energy consumption is sourced from renewable suppliers, where possible. Finally, any remaining CO2 emissions are compensated by buying CO2 credits from the Climate Neutral Group. CO2 emissions were compensated by sustainable forestry projects (50%) and emission reduction projects (50%) certified by The Gold Standard, in 2010. As far as possible, Triodos Bank avoids the use of volatile organic materials and other materials that could damage the ozone layer.
