Everyone gets (green) energy from this!

Rabobank and Vandebron make the difference together

The offer "You make the difference, we pay the difference" is one of the first climate actions that Rabobank conducts in 2018. The bank and energy supplier Vandebron together ensure that you will not pay more for green energy than you now pay to your current energy supplier. Green energy from sun and wind power from Dutch soil is accessible to everyone.

The offer "You make the difference, we pay the difference" is one of the first climate actions that Rabobank conducts in 2018. The bank and energy supplier Vandebron together ensure that you will not pay more for green energy than you now pay to your current energy supplier. Green energy from sun and wind power from Dutch soil is accessible to everyone.

Energy supplier Vandebron wants to make an impactful contribution to the energy transition and to this end delivers 100% green energy from Dutch soil. The supply and demand of locally generated renewable energy thus come together. As a customer you can choose the source from which you take your energy.

Rabobank, together with customers and partners, also wants to contribute significantly to sustainability in the Netherlands. In order to realize this, the bank also uses its knowledge and network in addition to financing. Think of the way in which companies are concretely helped towards circular business operations. But also how homeowners are advised how to make their homes more energy-efficient. The aim of both parties to jointly switch as many households as possible to local green energy is therefore very logical.

Rabobank has been encouraging private homeowners in the Netherlands to take energy-saving measures for some time, so that more than 1 million owner-occupied homes with a Rabobank mortgage will be energy-neutral by 2050 at the latest. That is good for the climate and good for the customer.

"Rabobank wants to make sustainable energy available to everyone. First, we encourage customers to make their homes more sustainable, in order to save as much energy as possible. What is left over can be purchased green via Vandebron. That is how we make the Netherlands a lot greener.''

Bas Rüter - Sustainability Director, Rabobank

This is a strategic collaboration for both parties. Rabobank and Vandebron have indicated that they want to expand the cooperation. The intention was therefore to come up with an offer for business customers and with an offer for electric driving on green electricity.

"In the Netherlands only 6% of the energy is sustainably generated. Vandebron wants to make the energy market more transparent. We look forward to further accelerating the transition to 100% sustainably locally produced energy together with Rabobank."

Many Vandebron producers are also clients of Rabobank, such as agricultural entrepreneurs with a windmill on their premises or local energy cooperatives with solar panels on roofs. Curious about their personal stories? Watch this video in which proud energy producers Jaap and Feikje, Peter and Tejon and Peter van Roij tell how their energy comes directly from the source.

Rabobank and Vandebron's private banking activities will run from 30 April to 31 July 2018. You can find all the information about this joint initiative at www.rabobank.nl/vandebron.
