A Brighter Future
See how Forbright is accelerating the changes that will move our future forward.
As the need to build a low-carbon economic system grows increasingly urgent, we are committed to financing the sustainable businesses and clean energy projects that are driving that progress.
We are guided by the belief that sustainable finance is good for customers, our business, and society as a whole.
It starts with you
When you partner with a bank, you make a decision about how your money will be used. Considering where your dollar goes, beyond your account, is the first step towards better banking.
Sustainable finance vs. traditional finance
Traditionally, banks lend money to a wide range of projects, including fossil fuels. At Forbright, we focus on lending money to values-driven projects designed to create a sustainable and low-carbon future.
Funding helps climate-conscious companies grow
Today, we finance millions in residential solar loans, wind turbine repairs, and electrifying the nation’s largest school bus company. Projects we finance are vetted according to our rigorous Responsible Investment Policy and Sustainable Finance Framework to ensure they are both aligned with our values and financially viable.
Sustainable products & decarbonization solutions flourish
As these projects generate positive returns, a feedback loop is created. The more money that flows into sustainable projects like geothermal energy, green housing solutions, electric vehicle fleets, or wind and solar parks, the more innovations are made in those sectors to create additional environmental gains. As the cycle gains momentum, the sustainable economy grows.
Leading to a cleaner planet and happier communities
The impact of your decision is ultimately felt not only in the form of strong returns but in reduced pollution, a stabilizing climate, and a more sustainable economic system for all. Thanks to a conscious choice about where you invest your money, our planet’s future looks brighter for generations to come.
We believe the three core ideas that drive our business are ones of consequence:
The science is clear. Climate change is a fundamental risk to individuals, businesses, and our world.
We must move to a more sustainable, net-zero carbon economy to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. These issues cut across every industry, and governments cannot fund this transition alone. America needs a bank to help finance a brighter, greener, and more sustainable future. This imperative is the single largest investment opportunity of our lifetime.
We live in a period of extraordinary change.
The speed of technological innovation in our world is accelerating at an exponential rate. Entrepreneurs, investors, and consumers need a trusted bank and lender that moves as fast and as smart as they do to drive their businesses, investments, and financial goals to greater success.
Individuals and institutions want to bank with a leader committed to sustainable practices.
A large and growing number of individuals and institutions want to bank with a leader whose policies and practices reflect these values. We let people connect their banking decisions to a mission-driven institution that is committed to driving progress for their communities and society.
Forbright’s mission is to be an indispensable partner for advancing all three. We hope you’ll join us.
