Triodos Corporate Finance in the UK continued to pioneer innovative finance models in social investment. This included raising capital of EUR 19 million, for eight high impact organisations across a range of sustainability sectors, including tackling homelessness, community renewables and supported living for people with learning disabilities. Two Social Impact Bonds, Triodos New Horizons and St Mungos, successfully achieved their investment goals and are among the first of new ‘payments by results’ contracts to meet their targets in the UK.
