Dr Bevis Watts – Chief Executive of Triodos Bank UK will deliver a lecture as part of the Bristol Distinguished Address Series entitled “ Bankers must become Eco-warriors. “Could banks serve the needs of society better? Are they undermining our long-term ability to sustain ourselves by not actively seeking to address the climate emergency; inequality and societal needs? Perhaps the first and only environmentalist to lead a UK bank; Dr Bevis Watts puts forward the case that much of the financial sector is undermining efforts to tackle these issues. In fact; the UK’s current banking system holds the potential; through adaptation; to be a catalyst for a sustainable future. For 25 years in the UK; Triodos Bank has demonstrated a model of sustainable banking that uses the intermediary power of finance to benefit people and the planet. They are also 100% transparent about who they lend to – focusing only on organisations that deliver positive environmental; social or cultural change. With the right values; banks can be a force for good and affect real positive systemic change in society.
