Environmental Report – Key figures

In addition to the positive impact of financing sustainable enterprises that safeguard the environment, Triodos Bank also continuously aims to reduce its impact on the environment as an institution itself. This scope goes beyond its own activities to include its choice of suppliers, products and services.

Methodology

The data to calculate the final CO2 footprint of Triodos Bank are collected by Local Environmental Managers (LEM's) in the various countries. They complete all data, including underlying evidence, in a CO2 Management Application of the Climate Neutral Group (CNG). The LEM of The Netherlands checks if the input of all data and evidence has been done correctly. After the completion of this phase all data is consolidated by the Finance Division (four eyes principle). Finally an external auditor checks if all relevant data has been entered accurately and approves the outcome. CNG determines conversion factors for the calculation of the amount of greenhouse gas emission caused by the CO2 production of Triodos Bank on an annual basis. The conversion factor multiplied with the outcome of the different components results in Triodos Bank’s total CO2 footprint.
