Key features and benefits

How it works

If you’re looking to fund an environmental or clean energy project, our guidance and sector expertise could help to make it happen2

You could borrow money to fund all green changes to your business and green projects, including 

  • Harnessing and storing solar and wind energy 
  • Improving EPC ratings
  • Upgrading to eco-friendly machinery 

If it’s a green project and good for the planet, we should be able to help.

A few things to consider

  • The length of the loan term can impact the interest rate you pay
  • If you repay all or part of the loan early, a prepayment fee may be payable and interest payable over the loan term could be higher
  • Security may be required3
  • Lending fees and associated borrowing costs will apply
  • If you decide to cancel a fixed interest rate, you may have to pay breakage costs


Capital repayment holiday

You can choose to take an interest-only period (subject to status and application)4. During this time only the interest will be payable.

Choose a variable or fixed rate

The fixed interest rates are available from 1 to 10 years. 

Flexible repayment

Choose your loan term over a period of 1 to 20 years, with monthly repayments.


You should speak with an independent financial adviser if you need advice on whether a green loan is suitable for your business.

How to apply
