Tandem Bank partners with Kuppa to promote greener homes
Kuppa will provide Tandem customers with specific and personalised recommendations to make their homes more green
In a move towards more sustainable living, Tandem Bank has partnered with home energy intelligence platform Kuppa to help its customers make green home decisions.
Kuppa, established in 2022, specialises in providing businesses and consumers with insights into the financial and environmental impact of home improvements, working with banks, energy suppliers, and local authorities to showcase these insights.
Starting in Q1 2024 Tandem’s green hub, which currently lets customers learn and explore greener choices for upgrading their homes, will be overhauled with more specific and personalised recommendations.
"Collaborating with Kuppa enhances our commitment by providing UK households with actionable insights to elevate the sustainability of their homes and save money, whilst reducing carbon footprints," Alex Mollart, Tandem CEO said.
Only last month Tandem hired James Streeter as its new head of ESG 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 per cent 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.
