– MONEY AS A FORCE FOR GOOD WITH TRIODOS BANK
In this episode I'm chatting to Amy Robinson who is the business development manager at Triodos bank.
For those of you who haven’t heard of them, Triodos are the UK’s most ethical bank and have a tagline that is “money as a force for good" which I totally love!
The banking industry as a whole isn’t one that I think would be seen as ‘ethical’ – we all have images of rich nanker types making their fortunes and only really caring about the financial bottom line.
At Triodos they do it diferently, and as well as making sure they are making sound financial investements they look very carefully a the impact of the projects and organistions they are funding on both people and planet too.
Duing this podcast I talk about how I have long recognised the power of my money in terms of using it to cast a vote for the kind of world I want with my buying deciosns, but how I hadn’t really joined up the dots to wonder about what my money might be funding when it was locked away in the bank, and I think that that’s probably pretty common.
Find out more about the power of your money in this episode and the things that you can do to ensure that it’s being used as a force for good – enjoy!
