Greener homes

Trying to make your house greener isn’t just good for the planet, it can help save money on your household bills as well. The good news is it’s easy to get started. Here’s a few things you can do to help.

Why make your home green?

More efficient on water and energy

Not only will you be playing your part in the battle against climate change, you’ll also be saving money by reducing your usage.

Lower your carbon footprint

Our homes account for 22% of the country’s carbon emissions, taking steps to reduce this can make a big difference.

Increase your property value

Improvements that increase your property’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) can boost the overall value of the house.

TSB are planting trees for every home move

As one of the UK’s major mortgage providers, we’re keen to help our customers go green. As part of our Do What Matters Plan, we’re aiming to be net zero by 2030.

With help from Eforests, we’re planting a tree for every home move with a TSB mortgage. So far, we’ve planted over 57,000 trees in England, Scotland, and Wales – and that keeps on growing!
