Triodos Bank’s Executive Board provides a perspective on the wider world it operates in, its impact and activity in 2016 and its prospects for the future.
Triodos Bank will develop its work on the basis of a new three year plan which began in 2016. The plan will focus on exploring opportunities beyond its traditional core banking, developing more innovative approaches to sustainable finance, deepening its relationship approach and becoming more of a learning organisation.
Excluding unforeseen circumstances, Triodos Bank expects a stable operational profit in 2017. Triodos Bank will extend its impact through a more diversified loan portfolio and quality financial services with sustainability at their core and will encourage and provide finance for enterprises increasing the sustainable impact of their business. We recognise that the economic downturn that has resulted from the financial crisis, and a slow recovery in some countries, will continue in 2017 and may have an additional impact on Triodos Bank’s results. Because of these factors, Triodos Bank expects to deliver a stable net profit in 2017 compared to 2016.
