This section describes the main results achieved in 2022 at Group level as well as by Triodos Bank division. It describes its products and services, their broader impact and the prospects for the coming years.

They provide insight into how our mission and strategic objectives performed in 2022.
First, we present consolidated financial results. This is then broken down into results by division, including an overview of our loan and investment portfolio.
