We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and to making a positive contribution to the communities in which we live and work.

Supporting environmental developments

We welcome enquiries from clients seeking finance and guidance for Passive House developments and other environmentally-friendly home and renewable energy initiatives. We also offer finance for environmental projects such as forestation and peatland restoration.

Learn more about the special arrangements we can offer for Passive House certified developments.

Contact us to discuss your project with one of our bankers.

Reducing our carbon footprint

As well as supporting clients with their environmental projects, here are some of the ways we are reducing our carbon footprint:


100% of the energy we use in our largest office is from renewable sources.


To reduce the amount we travel for business, we are making greater use of video conferencing capabilities. We also provide our staff with ‘cycle to work’ and electric vehicle leasing schemes.


The paper we use is from fully sustainable sources and we provide digital banking to offer clients paperless statements.


We separate our waste which is then either recycled or turned into energy.
