Green Deposits

Green Deposits is a new savings account designed for individuals, NGOs and companies wanting to contribute towards a greener future. The account is a non-indexed, demand account, which means savers can withdraw their money whenever they want.

One of the fundamental roles of banks is to facilitate the flow of funds from savers to borrowers, and deposits are central to this function. Money deposited into Green Deposits is invested in green projects in line with Arion Bank's Green Financing Framework.
