Triodos Bank invites specialists and organisations to develop and challenge its vision and policies on different themes and sectors.
It also engages in selected stakeholder dialogues and presentations that are aligned with its mission and values. For instance, the organisation’s Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) funds work closely together with NGOs to help determine sustainability standards for various industries. Triodos Bank Belgium was one of the organising partners at the 2nd edition of the Transition Festival in 2014, for example.
Financial education is a regular theme of Triodos Bank’s stakeholder engagement activity. During 2014 co-workers provided guest lessons in schools during the Dutch ‘Week van het Geld’. In Spain Triodos Bank participates in an ongoing school programme to teach values in the financial sector. In Germany the branch participated in the Fair Finance Network’s ‘Fair Finance Week’ in Frankfurt offering speeches, discussions and workshops.
