Advisors and inspirers
This diverse group of people contribute to the further development of Triodos Bank’s vision and mission. It includes external advisors with innovative ideas who respond to requests or provide advice spontaneously, and individuals who inspire new possibilities and insights. These people are vitally important, particularly in the development of sustainability strategies.
Triodos Bank invites inspiring people to speak at specially convened sessions in its branches, and at international theme meetings. The 2013 meeting in Toledo, Spain, focused on Energy and Climate with experts from around the world contributing. This programme will be repeated in 2014.
In addition in 2009, Triodos Bank co-founded the Global Alliance for Banking on Values a growing network of independent sustainable banks which provides a rich source of inspiration and challenge for senior members of Triodos Bank’s Executive Team, Supervisory Board members, and a group of younger talented professionals known as Values Ambassadors.
In 2010 Triodos Bank, together with the Utrecht University, set up the Sustainable Finance Lab. The Lab brings scientists from diverse disciplines together to develop ideas that make a powerful contribution to a sustainable, stable and robust financial sector. The organisation hosted a number of public and private meetings throughout 2013 to further this agenda.
