Tandem’s ESG commitments

In October 2023, Tandem made new hires in the ESG department to lead on the bank’s environmental, social and governance policies, compliance, and target-setting, in addition to working on the integration of ESG across all of the bank’s products and propositions.

Over 68% of the bank’s existing loan book is focused on supporting green initiatives like home improvement loans for energy efficiency improvements, low-emission motor loans, and EPC discount mortgages.

The bank recently returned to London with a new office in Bloomsbury where some 50 employees will soon work, spread across the organisation’s marketing, treasury, risk, and strategy teams.

In April 2023, Tandem Bank has acquired Loop, a socially-conscious money-sharing app, with the aim of building a greener digital bank. Tandem, focused on promoting environmentally friendly financial practices, plans to integrate Loop's platform into its digital offerings.

Loop, launched in early 2022, facilitates safe lending and borrowing among friends and family, aiming to disrupt the informal money-sharing market and reduce reliance on expensive bank overdraft charges. After the transaction, Loop maintains its independence as an app and brand, while incorporating Tandem's products to expand its range of savings and lending services.
