Onderzoeksoutput: ChapterProfessional

Uittreksel

The story of Triodos Bank over the last 20 years reads as a success story. It is also a story about how principles are guiding business. However, principles need a pragmatic approach in order to be successful. Over the past 30 years the bank’s management has succeeded in balancing a clear focus to create value for society with the objectives of a financially sound company. This case will describe this development, focusing on a period of rapid growth from 1990 to 2009, in which the organization grew from a small entity to a serious bank.
