Accessibility statement

When designing its website, Triodos Investment Management is committed to ensuring the website is fully accessible to everyone. In the design phase, all designs were tested against the WCAG (World Wide Web Content Accessibility) 2.0 guidelines  with a view to attaining AA standard (highest standard). During the testing phase, Triodos IM and Triodos Bank worked with The Foundation, an international centre of expertise on web accessibility and one of the few inspection bodies in The Netherlands accredited to test web accessibility.

Currently this website does not yet fully comply to level A standard. Triodos IM is committed to achieve this level, and where possible level AA. At the end of 2017, the Foundation will audit this website according to the AA standard. We will share the outcomes of this audit at that point in time.

Graphical design

On every decision taken, we asked ourselves whether it contributed to user-friendliness and accessibility. One of the outcomes was that we decided to increase the contrast between text and background to ensure that text could be read more easily.

Text resizing

We enabled alteration of text sizes through the text larger / smaller option at the top of the page.


We applied Javascript to improve usability of the site and make the site more visually attractive. We decided not to use Flash. For all instances where Javascript was applied, alternatives are available so that people without javascript (and readers) are able to access the functionality provided.


All images on the site are accompanied by an alt-text tag that identifies the image or its function.


If you have any comments, suggestions or feedback to improve accessibility, please feel free to contact us .
