A Time of Transition

Much has changed in recent years prompting people, business and the governments that serve us to rethink how we want to develop as individuals and society. The need for change is accepted by most. But what kind often remains unclear.

How we generate and distribute energy, for example, is changing fast as governments and short-term private interests wrestle with the need to reduce and replace polluting fossil fuels. Part of this debate focuses on whether production and control of energy should lie in a centralized structure, or be decentralized. Another focuses on how to deal with the transition to a low carbon future, knowing that market mechanisms will not serve us adequately. This is also true for education, food production and other crucial parts of our lives.

The debate about what kind of change we need, and how to deliver it, is particularly relevant to the banking sector. It is closely linked to the well-being of wider society because it provides finance for business and the economy to grow and develop. For some, we just need to ‘fix’ the existing system. For others, including Triodos Bank, we need a more fundamental systemic transition.
