Considereing the possibility of making some ethical investment, I was looking into the Triodos Bank.
They're originally a dutch bank but have been operating in the UK for years
Interestingly, theyre pr section say they only lend money they actually have on deposit, so are not exposed to or affected by the credit crunch.
Anyway, I found a page relating to Ireland (here), and although they offer loans to Irish ventures they say:
Almost sounds as if ethical banking was not allowed here !We cannot, however, offer personal banking services in Ireland.
Anyone know of any ethical banks operating here? People have mentioned credit unions to me, but don't they keep their money in main stream bank accounts?
