As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Triodos Bank, Triodos Investment Management aligns with and incorporates the measures following the COVID-19 pandemic as communicated by Triodos Bank. In brief:
Triodos Bank is taking all necessary steps to ensure the well-being and safety of our co-workers during the corona pandemic. We have also ensured that we can continue vital services to our customers.
In every country where Triodos Bank is active (the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, the United Kingdom and Germany) we observe the measures announced by local (health) authorities to limit the risks to our co-workers, our customers and society as a whole.
We emphasise to our co-workers to follow the basic hygiene measures, and we work from home as much as possible. We have split critical operations in different teams who work at different locations where necessary, we no longer travel internationally for work and we avoid face to face meetings where possible.
How we support our customers
Triodos Bank has extensive business continuity plans for all its locations and activities. In this way, we ensure that the continuity of the services is not compromised. The banking sector, including Triodos Bank, is committed to facing the challenge of the crisis and will do its utmost to support customers. The European Central Bank and the Dutch Central Bank (DNB) have made this possible by allowing the use of some of the buffers, freeing up capital to provide credit.
The COVID-19 outbreak reminds us of our interdependency as human beings and that a global crisis like this one, affects all of us. Having confidence in each other, working together and not leaving anyone behind is crucial.
We hope that as society recovers, the learnings from this crisis contribute to a complete transformation of the economy in the coming decades, bringing it more in tune with our planet and making it more socially inclusive.
