What is green asset finance?

Green asset finance is a type of asset finance that allows you to buy equipment and vehicles to help you achieve your sustainability goals. It allows you to spread the cost over time so you don’t pay the full amount upfront.

As it’s part of our Clean Growth Financing Initiative (CGFI), you’ll pay a lower interest rate as long as the asset is used to reduce the environmental impact of your business.
