“Green finance and the zero carbon home in particular is something that consumers are becoming more aware of, but something they still don’t necessarily understand; they either don’t know how to make a difference or how best to fund the changes they want to make,” said Ricky Knox, founder and chief executive of Tandem Bank.

This is Money
The big green money guide

Tandem's chief executive Ricky Knox said: 'I founded Tandem with the number-one intent of building The Good Bank - one that puts customers’ needs first and takes the stress out of money management to leave people with more money to spend on the things they love. 'With the acquisition of Allium, we can truly evolve our mission from building The Good Bank to becoming the UK’s first green digital retail bank.'
