Lloyds Bank

The agriculture sector has a key role to play in tackling climate change and Lloyds Bank is committed to helping farmers and agricultural businesses tackle the root causes of these challenges, supporting your ambitions to become economically and environmentally sustainable in the medium and long term. This is why we are delighted to sponsor the British Farming Awards 2023, Sustainable Farmer of the Year.

Our support for the sector includes:

  • Agriculture relationship managers trained through the Royal Agricultural University and the world-leading Cambridge Institute of Sustainability Leadership, giving them a valuable insight into the needs of farmers and agricultural businesses.
  • Discounted lending through our Clean Growth Financing Initiative, offering funding for a broad range of investments in sustainable agriculture, from renewable energy generation such as solar and wind, to green agri-tech solutions. The eligibility criteria to access this funding includes:

    • Restoring peatlands
  • Working with the Soil Association Exchange to help farmers identify and fund sustainable strategies, from soil health to water quality and biodiversity.
