The SU should commit to using Triodos bank, an ethical bank that does not invest in fossil fuels.

Extra Information: 

UWE has recently been in round table talks with Triodos, a bank with local offices in Bristol that not only refuses to invest in fossil fuels, but actively invests in positive environmental, social or cultural impact projects.


Adopting a bank like Triodos for union finances could be a great step forward to ‘embed sustainability in all we do’, as is highlighted in the Students Union's strategic mission.
